The purpose of empathy in good leadership


If you want to be in a position where you get better results from your staff and stakeholders, then be a leader who is empathic and externally attuned. When people feel valued and trusted, they are also more likely to treat others the same way, no matter the situation they find themselves in.

You might be surprised to know that the most important quality that people look for in a leader is empathy. For leaders who are compassionate and show that there is no judgement when conversations take place, people will willingly reciprocate with solutions and honest responses. 

To be empathic means to tap into your internal attunement and show your team that you genuinely care about them as people. Be open about helping them manage their work as well as their relationship with suppliers, customers, and/or stakeholders. Let them know that your door is always open if they need to talk about any personal challenges that affect their work. 

Develop your empathy as a leader with the help of corporate trainer Ricky Nowak at your next conference/team meeting. You'll learn how to be intuitive about situations and people, as well as the emotions they may be experiencing.
