Empathy is the ability to build understanding around another person’s thoughts, feelings, and rationale through inclusive behavior.
In today’s disrupted healthcare marketplace, it is imperative to build a greater level of understanding of customers’ thoughts, needs, and challenges. Empathetic engagement builds trust and makes customers feel understood, valued, and respected. However, despite the importance of empathy, not every employee has the skills to empathetically engage with customers.
Here are four tips to improve your empathetic engagement skills:
- Understand the customer’s current situation
- Seek the customer’s perspective
- Ask for the customer’s feedback
- Follow-up on agreements
