“Successful companies combine the elements of a needs-based consciousness and empathic connection. Even in hierarchical systems… the more empathic the people were, the higher the level of leadership and manager performance.” Marie R. Miyashiro.
The following is a list of needs for the workplace, as taken from Marie’s book, The Empathy Factor
It is based on Marshall Rosenberg’s list of universal human needs. Neither exhaustive nor definitive, it is meant as a starting place to support anyone who wishes to engage in a process of deepening self-discovery and to facilitate greater understanding and connection between people.
