Empathy practice #2: A curiosity challenge

Think of someone with whom you interact frequently, such as a personal or professional acquaintance. What is something they are very interested in that you are not? Set aside thirty minutes and get curious about the subject. Then:
  • Listen to learn: find something interesting about the area. What is something you would be willing to know more about?
  • Give them an opportunity to contribute: tell the other person about your area of interest and ask them to teach you something.
