EMPATHY PLEASE

there are far too many teachers and professionals who lack empathy when it comes to dealing with colleagues, clients, and those with whom they are associating. There is no room for dispassionate highhandedness when dealing with people. Education is all about humanity and developing others. There should never be putdowns, sarcasm, and other manifestations of behaviour by those in charge which will cause discomfort and squirming on the part of those with whom they are dealing. It is fine to point out things that might be done differently and better but this needs to be done Humanistically and in a way that encourages the person being developed to make the effort. Putdowns are turnoffs and we don’t need that in our professions.

Remember the importance in the practice of empathy and always unto others as you would have them to do unto you.
