Thought leaders like Ashoka and NPR are currently engaging people in empathy building and storytelling. Last spring I went to a conference where a senior staffer at Ashoka began discussing their (at the time) new idea about building empathy, as a means to drive understanding and build public will. People nodded their heads but had plenty of questions about how do you actually go about doing it.
Today Alicia Haywood gives you the scoop on how to get it done.

I am embarking on an exciting project which I am pretty sure you will love. Over the next few months you will be getting a chance to see what it takes to change the universe. I’m interviewing passionate change makers in health*.
These people are going to blow you away with their honesty and detailed notes on how they got to where they are today. In order to make it feasible to get all the juicy details, the interviews will be posted into two jam packed sessions. The first interview will cut to the chase– they will tell you the problem they are intending to fix, how they chose their method as the way to do it and give advice to you on how to charge into their field. The second interview is a deep dive where they will tell you what it really takes to be a game changer, how to define success and weather you’re cut out for being the lead change agent or if you should make the leaders casseroles (everyone needs to eat so there is no disgrace intended here).
These are interviews from people in global health, equine therapy, primary care, food security and everything else in between!
Stay tuned…eyes peeled….lovely things will enter your in-box next week.
