    The empathy map canvas helped us to understand how important is it to empathize with the stakeholders who are being affected by the project. It allowed us to understand the issue properly and find solutions for it. While working on the innovation team, we can apply this knowledge to empathize with the team members and improve team performance.

    The empathy map canvas helped our team to empathise with the stakeholders of the project. We defined different stakeholders for the project and prepared an empathy map canvas for each of them. This helped us in gaining a deeper understanding of the stakeholder's situation, wants needs, and expectations, and helped us in connecting with them. The empathy map canvas is a great tool to understand and empathise with the stakeholders to come up with an idea that addresses all their needs and expectations.

    In order to respond appropriately, it is imperative to be empathetic, so we can understand how others feel. Individuals have their own perspectives and opinions, which I strongly believe. It is my responsibility as a team member to respect their ideologies and add value to them. Every problem can also be solved through communication.

    Analysis of any situation can be the first step taken to problem-solving. At the same time, considering the things happening in the surroundings and considering the people being part of it is also important. differentiating between sympathizing and empathizing can be portrayed through our actions by not just understanding the other person but also being accommodative to their situation. Hence, it was a great reflection of working in a team to mutually understand and respect team members' presence.

    To empathize is to understand or relate to someone else emotional experience. A person with this quality always tries to deeply understand what they are feeling or what it's like to be in their situation.

    I guess thinking from their point of view is the most important thing to empathize with them. When we are working in team and one of my team member is facing a problem, I should listen to them without interrupting or judging them to understand their actual situation. To think from their shoes is needed to get better understanding of their condition so that I can help them to solve the problem.
