Building bridges for the future through collaborative projects
When we meet someone in person, we do all we can do try to spark a connection between each other. It could simply be talking about what's on someones shirt, or complimenting a trait of theirs. Virtually, we also try to connect but by asking questions. We relate by asking about what music they like, sports teams they like, or what hobbies and activities they enjoy. I know that empathy is needed to be successful in whatever you do. Being able to work with others is important because it makes your job easier and more fun. In order to be able to collaborate with others, it's important to have empathy because it can benefit not only yourself, but also the people you are working with. I am currently trying to build empathy by talking to group members more and complimenting.
