In this episode of the Wisdom for Business and Life podcast, Levi Brackman discusses Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars and how public shaming in the name of comedy is also a form of violence. He talks about genuine empathy, which means feeling the pain of others and going to great lengths to avoid inflicting that pain even if it means it may cause us to hurt. Empathy builds trust because people see that we will not do anything intentionally to hurt them. This level of empathy makes us better people, leaders, and friends, which leads to success.
