分擔彼此的重擔

THE BENEVOLENCE OF BURDEN-BEARING

 

在工作上發生重大挑戰的變動期間,我問一個員工說:「你還好嗎?」 她回答說:「還可以。」我看著她的眼睛再問一次:「你真的還好嗎?」因為從她的行為舉止當中,我發現工作上所帶來的不安已經對她產生負面的影響。

 

隔天,她淚流滿面來找我,對我說,昨天我問她那個問題觸動了她的內心,因為那個問題讓她明白我真的在乎她的感受,接著她解釋自己面對變動一些重要的看法,以及現在最困擾她的事。

有一個研究員工福利的公司發現,33%的員工願意換到更有同理心的公司,以及40%的員工願意為真正替他們的身心靈健康著想的公司加班。

 

這是一個很有趣的發現,因為在商學院的企管課程中,同理心是個不受重視的主題。就算是訓練管理的課程,焦點通常也是放在如何更有成效、更有效率地把事情做好,從來沒有強調員工在工作時的心理感受。

 

同理心被定義為能理解他人的感受和與人分享的能力。在工商專業界,我們很容易忽略別人的感受,因為盡可能地提高利潤和滿足股東才是最重要的。但是真心關懷員工,能提高員工的忠誠度、滿意度以及工作效率,因為他們覺得自己受到重視。

 

聖經新約的加拉太書62節教導我們:「你們各人的重擔要互相擔當,如此,就完全了基督的律法。」無論是情感的上的重擔,或是遇到短時間內無法解決的問題而產生的壓力,都是可能會壓垮一個人。有時候,我們可以用特別的、有形的方式來彼此幫忙,其他的時候,我們能做的就是表達自己的關心,這樣就足夠了。我們也許可以告訴他們,我們正在為他們禱告。分擔別人的重擔,是一個讓人無法忘懷的恩惠。

願意把別人的需要放在自己之前   無論我們的角色是行政、管理者或是同工,對別人表達同理心能傳達我們真誠的關懷。我們堅固的人應該擔代不堅固人的軟弱,不求自己的喜悅。(羅馬書 151).

 

所不欲,勿施於人。如果你在處一個壓力很大的狀況下,你會希望有人來關心你,幫助你度過難關嗎?弟兄們,你們蒙召是要得自由,只是不可將你們的自由當作放縱情慾的機會,總要用愛心互相服事。因為全律法都包在「愛人如己」這一句話之內了。(加拉太書 513-14).

反省與問題討論

 

第一、總的來說,在職場上你經常看到有人表現出同理心嗎?請描述一下當時的狀況。

 

第二、你還記得有人對你表現出真誠的關懷時,你的感受如何嗎?

 

第三、有一些人天生就比其他人有同理心。你認為自己是屬於哪一類的人:非常有同理心、還算有同理心或者是沒甚麼同理心?

 

第四、如果我們並非天生就很有同理心,要如何在他人遇到困難的時候,變得更有同理心、更為他人的需要著想?

 

備註: 如果你手上有聖經,希望知道更多關於這個主題的經文,請參考:

箴言1214節、18

12:14 人因口所結的果子,必飽得美福;人手所做的,必為自己的報應。

12:18 說話浮躁的,如刀刺人;智慧人的舌頭卻為醫人的良藥。

箴言154

15:4溫良的舌是生命樹;乖謬的嘴使人心碎。

箴言1624

16:24良言如同蜂房,使心覺甘甜,使骨得醫治。

箴言 205

20:5人心懷藏謀略,好像深水,惟明哲人才能汲引出來。

箴言2012

20:12能聽的耳,能看的眼,都是耶和華所造的。

傳道書 49-12

4:9兩個人總比一個人好,因為二人勞碌同得美好的果效。

4:10 若是跌倒,這人可以扶起他的同伴;若是孤身跌倒,沒有別人扶起他來,這人就有禍了。

4:11 再者,二人同睡就都暖和,一人獨睡怎能暖和呢?

4:12 有人攻勝孤身一人,若有二人便能敵擋他;三股合成的繩子不容易折斷。

哥林多前書1212-20節、26

12:12 就如身子是一個,卻有許多肢體;而且肢體雖多,仍是一個身子;基督也是這樣。

12:13 我們不拘是猶太人,是希臘人,是為奴的,是自主的,都從一位聖靈受洗,成了一個身體,飲於一位聖靈。

12:14 身子原不是一個肢體,乃是許多肢體。

12:15 設若腳說:「我不是手,所以不屬乎身子,」它不能因此就不屬乎身子。

12:16 設若耳說:「我不是眼,所以不屬乎身子,」它不能因此就不屬乎身子。

12:17 若全身是眼,從哪媗民n呢?若全身是耳,從哪婸D味呢?

12:18 但如今, 神隨自己的意思把肢體俱各安排在身上了。

12:19 若都是一個肢體,身子在哪堜O?

12:20 但如今肢體是多的,身子卻是一個。

12:26 若一個肢體受苦,所有的肢體就一同受苦;若一個肢體得榮耀,所有的肢體就一同快樂。

THE BENEVOLENCE OF BURDEN-BEARING

 

By Rick Boxx

 

One day during a period of some difficult changes at work, I asked an employee how she was doing. She responded that she was fine. I looked her in the eyes and said, “No. How are you really doing?” I could see from her demeanor that the upheaval at our business was taking a negative toll on her.


The next morning, with tears in her eyes, this employee approached me to say my heartfelt question the previous day had touched her. It made her understand that I really cared. She then expressed important thoughts about how she perceived the changes and what was troubling her the most.

A study by an employee benefits administration company discovered 33 percent of people would be willing to switch companies if they knew they would receive more empathy, and 40 percent said they would work longer hours as long as they felt assured that those they were working for genuinely cared about them and their well-being.

This is interesting, since empathy is not a topic given much attention in business schools, if at all. Even in management training, the focus is typically on how to get things done most productively and efficiently, not on how to address the heartfelt needs of the people doing the work.

 

Empathy is defined as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. In the business and professional world, we can easily ignore the feelings of others. Maximizing profits and satisfying stakeholders tend to take priority. But genuinely caring for others can make a tremendous difference in developing loyal employees that are more content and productive because they feel valued.

 

In the Bible’s New Testament, Galatians 6:2 teaches, “Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.” Another way to express this is “sharing the load.” The weight of emotions, or the strain of dealing with problems that cannot be quickly resolved, can overwhelm. Sometimes we can help in specific, tangible ways. Other times all we can do is communicate to the other person that we care – and sometimes, that is enough. We might assure them we are praying for them. Helping to bear someone else’s burdens might be an act of benevolence they will never forget.

The Scriptures affirm this principle in other ways:

 

Willingness to put others first. Whether our role is that of executive, supervisor or coworker, showing empathy to others communicates we are concerned for their best interests. We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.(Romans 15:1).

 

Doing as we would want others to do for us. If you were in the middle of circumstances that seemed overwhelming, would you want to experience the concern and care of others to help you through the difficult time? “…serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’(Galatians 5:13-14).

Reflection/Discussion Questions

 

1.       In general, how often do you see empathy expressed and demonstrated in the workplace? In what ways have you seen this done?

 

 

 

 

2.       Can you think of a time when you became the beneficiary of someone else’s sincere concern and caring? How did that make you feel?

 

 

 

 

3.       Some people are more naturally empathetic than others. How would you rate yourself on an “empathy scale” – very empathetic, somewhat empathetic, not very empathetic? Explain your answer.

 

 

 

 

4.    Even if empathy is not one of our natural assets, how can we strive to be more empathetic, more considerate of the concerns and needs of others going through difficult times?
