We have conversations everyday. Some are bad. Some are good. Some change our lives. Here at Tribeless, we’re a teensy bit obsessed with figuring out what goes into the latter.
In our 3 years of facilitating 1200+ hours of conversations, we identified the holy grail of good conversations to be... EMPATHY.
Empathy in a conversation looks like: “Hey, I’ve been there, you’re not alone.”
Empathy allows us to expand our worldview and include other people in it. It creates safety & connection unlike anything else. This serves as the bedrock for stronger relationships, tighter-knit communities, and happier lives.
The Empathy Box is the distillation of 1200+ hours of practical testing with 2000+ people from 80+ nationalities and 5 continents.
We’re absolutely can’t wait to get it into your hands. 💛
OUR DESIGN PRINCIPLES
Giving + Getting Permission
People can bring a lot of baggage into conversations. Try advising your friend to quit her job when you just lost yours, and you'll see what we mean. ;) Our focus on Permission-Based Design enables participants to take a step back, get present with themselves, and decide how they would like to interact with each other – setting up the group for a more thoughtful, nuanced discussion.
Embracing Diversity of Perspective
The Empathy Box's focus on real, personal, human stories and experiences – instead of beliefs or opinions – allow you to see past the physical, cultural and hierarchical differences of each participant, and harness the group's wisdom for the benefit of all.
Creating a Structure for Flow
Group conversations can be often chaotic, complex, and all over the place. We've distilled the elements of a good conversation into the six components you see in the Empathy Box. Together, they provide an overarching structure that create clarity and flow for any kind of conversation — from catching up with old friends, to a performance review with your team.
