Great leaders are Empathetic. We have turned empathy into a sign of weakness when actually, it’s your greatest strength.
If you lack empathy as a leader, your people don’t feel heard or understood. When we approach each conversation with empathy, it becomes a tool for accountability. When we are empathetic we are free to think in the face of other people’s upset.
In the webcast we discussed:
– The difference between empathy and sympathy
– How empathy is a strength, not a weakness
– How empathy drives accountability
– Why you can’t have empathy without boundaries
