On the 7th Day Of Leadership, Coach Lindsay gave to me the gift of leading with Empathy.

Empathy, that oft-mentioned human quality, is defined as ‘the ability to understand & share the feelings of another.’
What better trait could there be in someone who desires to be a great leader?

When we can be empathetic, we connect to others through our shared emotion, & on a deeper level. It is from there we learn how to inspire them.  When we spark inspiration in our business & our community, others show up as their best selves.

Oprah Winfrey said, “Leadership is about empathy. It’s about have the ability to relate to and connect with people for the purpose of inspiring and empowering their lives.”

When we can be vulnerable & show empathy, we create more honesty and trust. Collaboration is increased. Turnover is reduced.  At the core, it’s about fueling inspiration & empowering our teams that makes us truly great leaders.

So, my gift to you today are these words:
‘To be a great leader who inspires and empowers others, connect with empathy.’

Now your turn, have you felt the changing impact of empathetic leadership? Please share if you have!
