Whether you’re the leader of a small team or the CEO of a global corporation, you conduct work through your relationships with others. To be effective in those relationships, leaders must understand the perspectives of the people with whom they work. What leaders need is Empathy, the ability to sense others’ feelings and perspectives. With Empathy, you sense unspoken emotions. You listen attentively to understand the other person’s point of view and the perspectives that resonate with them.
In this collection, we explore the different facets of Empathy that we encounter as leaders, including:
- Showing empathy to ourselves as well as toward others
- Employing empathy when giving feedback
- The power of vulnerability in soliciting empathy from others
Team leaders and team members with strengths in Empathy have greater potential to boost the morale and performance of their teams, and more easily retain talent. Become an effective and empathetic leader today. Request Your Free eBook Now ⤵︎
