Empathy Needs A Better Rep In Sustainability

Empathy is crucial to corporate social responsibility and sustainability. Making it a feminine trait hinders leadership, communication and progress.

Does empathy have a “touchy/feely” rep, or is it just me? What I mean is, do we as a culture – and by default – assign empathy a “feminine” or “soft skill” essence? Our need to nurture sustainability leadership, right now, makes this a very important question.
