The Empathy Equation

The Empathy Equation

As a community of developers, we need to place a priority on seeking interdependence instead of independence; in our technology choices, our hiring practices and the way we interact with team members. Creating a healthy team begins by putting everyone on a level emotional playing field; we are all broken in one way or another and the first step to eliminating unhealthy team environments is figuring out how to admit that honestly. If we are to move forward together we need to talk about the hard things: how to cultivate empathy, when to speak up, when to stay quiet, how to build trust, and how to handle conflict without imploding.
