Exercising Empathy with the VentureLab Workbook
Entrepreneurs think about people’s feelings and needs and keep those in mind when solving problems. We call this empathy. Many people don’t know that empathy is a skill that can be learned, but these activities help us consider how we already show empathy and how we can become more empathetic!
This week’s activities are:
- How Do You Show Empathy? Write ways that you empathy at home, at school, and in your community
- What Are They Feeling? Read about problems people might be having, think about how they’re feeling, and decide how you would show them empathy
- Walk in Their Shoes. Stand in someone’s shoes — literally! — to consider how they think and feel.
- Empathy Coupons. Create coupons based on what makes people around you happy
