“If Our Intent Is To Serve Another Person, Empathy Allows Us To Respond Appropriately. It Allows Us To Be Successful In Our Relationships.“

“When We Start To Empathize With Another Person, We Start To Understand Them More Deeply, As Opposed To Just Coming In And Thinking, We Have The Answer To Them.”

“Empathy Requires Honesty. And Without It, The Response Is, It's Patronizing. It's When There's Honesty Without Empathy, It Can Be Delivered As Rude And Blunt And Abrasive.”

“Trusted Advisors, They Don't Operate In A Transactional World With Their Clients. They Operate By Feeling What Their Clients Feel And Delivering Like They're Solving Their Own Problems.”
