This week we return to Rick Brenner's Chaco Canyon newsletter for the column "Asking Brilliant Questions".  Throughout the leaders program we encourage participants to ask questions:  You do that as you are being present, you do it in meetings to draw out information from your colleagues, you do that as you coach.  In this column, Rick suggests seven types of questions you may find helpful as you work to move projects forward. 

 

Have a great week.  .  .  .  .     jim

Empathy

Today, I'm sending along references to two pieces from Rick Brenner's Chaco Canyon Consulting email newsletter on empathy.

The Merriam-Webster OnLine dictionary tells us that empathy is "the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner."
