Empathy vs Sympathy - What are the Differences?

Apathy - It doesn't matter, I don't really care if it hurts you or not.

Antipathy - I intentionally do no want to know that if it hurts you or not.

Sympathy - I'm so sorry that you are hurt.

Empathy - I feel your pain.

Take notice that for Apathy, Antipathy, & even Sympathy - there is a disconnect. There is some sort of separation between the 2 parties emotionally.

For empathy though, there is a direct emotional connection between the two parties.

Take notice:

How are you doing this as a colleague, as a team, as an organization as a whole?

How would you feel if your whole organization empathised with one another?
