Empathy is difficult (perhaps one of the most difficult things to do
as a human, behind perhaps forgiveness) but it's also the most
important thing that we're looking for on the project. Doubly so
because we're a loose, distributed team.

If so, can you suggest alternate wording that captures the intent? That does not include removing
it and replacing it with different virtues like honesty.
