Research has shown that frequent exposure to the hardships of others can lead one to become detached, apathetic and numb to the feelings of others. This is known as Compassion Fatigue, which is a condition characterized by a gradual lessening of compassion over time.
The two most common reactions amongst workers who begin suffering from Compassion Fatigue are cynicism and emotional exhaustion. Cynicism is characterized by a general distrust of others and their motives. Emotional exhaustion leaves you feeling drained and tired.
This creates employees who are about as caring as a robot. Obviously, having robots interacting with your clients isn’t a recipe for customer satisfaction. In this course, we will identify the warning signs of Compassion Fatigue and explore the techniques to rebound and build resiliency.
When pockets of Compassion Fatigue emerge, employee engagement and morale are negatively impacted. By using techniques involving self-care and reflection, expressing compassion is no longer a burden. This paves the way for your employees to demonstrate a genuine understanding and have an empathetic connection with your customers.
