COT: Been thinking a lot about empathy and in particular empathy in leadership. Because all we really have is the people around us and our ability to understand them, meet them where they are and help them grow, this helps us grow. Oprah Winfrey … lifestyle guru extraordinaire Oprah Winfrey … actually wrote on this and encapsulates it nicely: Leadership is about empathy. It is about having the ability to relate to and connect with people for the purpose of inspiring and empowering their lives.
Everybody you know – that includes subordinates and superiors in your professional lives – has something they’re carrying around. Respecting that helps you meet them where they are and makes both of you more effective for it.
