The journey

to empathy

begins with

a first step.

 

AT IDEOS, WE ARE TURNING EMPATHY INTO A STRATEGY FOR SOLVING THE WORLD'S GREATEST CHALLENGES.

WHO WE ARE 

The IDEOS Institute is a community of practice working to solve the empathy crisis as a catalyst for solving the world's greatest challenges.

 

 

Based on decades of expert research and theological wisdom, we utilize the power of storytelling to overcome division and difference, and as a catalyst for the rebuilding of empathy in our communities, nation, and world. We do this because we believe that empathy is one of the most powerful ingredients for critical thinking, decision making and problem-solving. It is also the essence of the Gospel message that “Christ so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son…” What an amazing amount of empathy God must have felt to offer us such a gift.

VIDEO: Empathy vs. Sympathy

Author: Brene Brown

Our brains are wired to run from pain—including emotional pain—whether it is ours or someone else's. In the video, Brown says empathy rarely starts with the words, “At least...” and oftentimes, the best response is, “I don't know what to say, but I am really glad you told me.”
