Definitions:

*Perspective:
  • Two-dimensional surface – give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other when viewed from a particular point.
  • Particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.
*Connection:
The ability to sense and feel is universal, as is the meaningfulness of values.   Value-needs are shared by humanity and the focus point of expanding beyond individual interpretations.  Identifying emotions is the first step of separating from habitual reactions and the start point of *empathetic- listening.   Naming the source of the emotion is the focus point of acknowledgement and recognition that nurtures understanding and willingness to the unique point of view of others.
.
*Empathetic-listening:
Empathetic-listening is the ability and willingness to listen without imposing personal believes interpretations, opinions and viewpoints into the conversation.  The willingness to clear “I” focus while hearing others and purposefully paying attention to the viewpoint that is being shared in a manner that could be directly shared back.
