Why Empathy is THE SKILL Leaders Need to Succeed

Since March 2020, the global pandemic has created more stress for leaders to manage, from implementing hybrid team protocols to handling employees’ expectations about where, how, and when work gets done.

The past few years of exhausting emotional work have caused some leaders to just walk out the door and leave the workforce entirely.

What about you? Are you doing OK or on the verge of burnout? Is your organization supporting you? Are they giving you the new tools you need to succeed during this time of the Great Resignation?

Or…are you on your own to figure out the new leadership playbook?

If so, listen to this video where I share some research about the realities of leadership today, and three paths to consider if you want to take charge of your ability to succeed as a leader in 2022 and beyond.

Enjoy,
