Storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it” – Hannah Arendt


I’ve been working with brands for 15+ years.   Over that time, I have crafted my fair share of “traditional” stories for my clients and their brands.   As the strategies came to reflect a greater social influence, I’ve recognized growing trends in how story themes have had to evolve from corporate traditions, towards a more human minded perspective.    I’ve summarized the seven most prominent themes as follows...

A Study to Determine the Impact of Empathy on Leadership Effectiveness Among Business Leaders in the United States and Malaysia

A Study to Determine the Impact of Empathy on Leadership Effectiveness Among Business Leaders in the United States and Malaysia | International Business | Scoop.it

Empathy is a pivotal leadership tool in today's global market. The current business world is characterized by rapid globalization which has led to an increase in the growth and prominence of multinational organizations. This trend towards globalization has increased the challenges faced by business organizations, which have to manage their employees across cultures, time zones, and organizational structures. Accordingly, the reality of a global market calls for business organizations to develop more effective leadership skills to enhance business survival and continuity.

 

This dissertation investigated the impact of empathy on leadership effectiveness by testing four hypotheses about the relationships among empathy, leadership effectiveness, and leaders' backgrounds in a sample of 216 business leaders located in the United States (51.9%) and Malaysia (48.1%) who completed an online survey in English. This study used a quantitative research design using Davis's Interpersonal Reactivity Index (IRI) to measure empathy and to test the impact of empathy on leadership effectiveness in the United States and Malaysia. The results indicate that American business leaders have significantly higher empathy than Malaysian business leaders, and that leaders with higher empathy appear to be more effective. The clear implication of these results is that global organizations need to develop leaders with high empathy skills.

Empathy skills are clearly important because leaders must understand their followers; empathy is a key ingredient in engaging followers.  Leaders must also provide direction and structure for activity so other communication skills are also needed. Understanding of context, constraints and circumstances of the enterprise being led places additional demands upon leaders; they must also have the capacity to assess these and see their relationship to aims and needs of those being led.
