    We ought to respect the opinions, beliefs, and values of others. By carefully listening to them, we can demonstrate our respect for them. Then, we should share our opinions.

    I will listen thoroughly to whatever my teammates will be discussing and talking about their experiences. Then I would put myself in their shoes and try to think from their perspective. This would help me to develop a good bond with my teammates. Only after that, we would be able to work as a team. I can understand how they might be feeling about a particular situation and how I can assist them. I would be able to understand our pains and gains and how to deal with them.

    I can demonstrate empathy in my innovation team by putting my own feelings and opinions aside and shift focus on my team members and their different perspectives. I will also take into consideration that every individual is unique and comes from different cultures and environments which means everyone has their own beliefs. With that being said, I will show empathy by respecting and valuing my team members differences and ensuring that I show them support as well as advocate for them when necessary. This means I will shut down any negative comments that include stereotyping and/or discrimination and encourage positivity and kindness by demonstrating it myself. Having empathy is key to building strong relationships and developing great team working skills!
