Giving Advice? How to do it right (NYTimes)

I love this: giving advice is often not giving advice.

This Zen statement is not about Zen.

Our physician informatics credo emphasizes relationships .

“We improve physician and team wellness and effectiveness by building extraordinary relationships and innovative tools.”

Extraordinary Relationships come from excellent communication.

Excellent communication comes from listening well.

Listening well comes from a position of empathic understanding.

Empathy is what we all crave. We should all learn the skills to exhibit empathy to others; this is the only way we might receive some in return. This article is a start.
