What happens when you apply empathy to guide business and personal decisions?
ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, January 19, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kristen Donnelly MSW, M.Div, Ph.D. is a TEDx speaker, international empathy educator, and researcher with two decades of experience in helping people understand the beauty in differences and the power in inclusivity. She prides herself on being one of The Good Doctors of Abbey Research, COO of their parent company, and an unapologetic nerd for stories of change.
During Episode #27 of The Couple-preneurs Show, Dr. Donnelly dives into a discussion with the host’s Oscar and Kiya Frazier around 2nd generation business ownership and diversifying business between making widgets and changing minds.
When asked what do you mean by changing minds, Dr. Donnelly explains, “We help organizations, professionals, and individuals learn empathy to build more inclusive communities.” With over two decades of studying people, Dr. Donnelly and her team at Abbey Research understand that all relationships take work – personal and professional alike. However, she notes that the application of empathy gives us all the capability of seeing the world through another person’s viewpoint.
Simply put, empathy is the act of putting oneself in another person’s shoes. Empathy creates the opportunity for individuals and companies to gain a deeper or more meaningful understanding of the life experiences of others. Thus, opening the door to better communication, understanding, and essentially strengthening relationships, partnerships, work environments, and more.
In the interview, Dr. Donnelly explains the importance of having a family mission statement that guides business and personal decisions. Abbey Companies is a 2nd generation family-owned network of companies serving various industries worldwide and seeking to increase capacity and promote excellence wherever they are. Her insight is honest and relatable.
When asked what inspired Abbey Research, Dr. Donnelly cheerfully responds, “We are speakers and educators. Our mission is based on the belief that every community of humans is made more inclusive through curiosity and empathy.”
