Empathy is being able to see things from other people's perspective and being able to understand the emotions of others. It is important to be able to see past your own views, opinions and circumstances. Once you're willing to see other people's viewpoints and listen to their opinions, you'll be considered an empathetic communicator.
To be successful you have to work well with other people by
- understanding their views and opinions
- considering the impact that you have on them and the relationship
- building rapport

Building empathy by determining emotions in other people.
Empathy involves the ability to read the behaviours and actions of others in order to understand that person's emotional state. How a person is feeling can be determined by looking at their non-verbal signals. Look out for these emotions on the TV, at work and at home.
The project looks at a range of different emotions getting you to identify how that emotion affects posture, facial expressions, the way the voice is used and the manner in which it is expressed through gestures.
Share with the class what you have learnt about body language through non-verbal signals and how you are using this to develop your empathy.
