Empathy and Leadership

Empathy and Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Empathy is the ability to identify and understand another's situation, feelings, and motives. Find out why this is so important in the workplace.

 

A few weeks ago, I came across a bumper sticker that said: "I am not good at empathy. Will you settle for sarcasm?" The humor in the bumper sticker led me to think of the slight unease or self-conscious discomfort that many people feel when a term such as "empathy" is introduced in a business environment. Notions of "touchy-feely," spring to mind.


While empathy is a right brain activity, it is far from being a touchy-feely topic. At its core, empathy is the oil that keeps relationships running smoothly. The fact that empathy is an important component of effective relationships has been proven: In studies by Dr Antonio Damasio (outlined in his book: "Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and the Human Brain."), medical patients who had damage to part of the brain associated with empathy showed significant deficits in relationship skills, even though their reasoning and learning abilities remained intact.

Emotional Self-Awareness and Empowerment: A CEO as a Spiritual Guide | Rethinking Complexity

Emotional Self-Awareness and Empowerment: A CEO as a Spiritual Guide | Rethinking Complexity | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

With the fading of other types of hero, today we look to the CEO as a guide not just in business, but also in other areas of life. Why should we do this? While there are many varieties of corporate leader, their ability to mobilize a group of people with a sense of meaning and purpose, to harness and align human energy, and to make a concrete difference in an important area of life gives them credibility to speak to us.

Humility Matters: 9 Ways Confident Leaders Remain Humble

Humility Matters:  9 Ways Confident Leaders Remain Humble | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

We want to follow people with confidence, charisma and a strong sense of direction. Confidence inspires, attracts, excites and ignites. We think, “they sure do seem to know what they’re doing…” And yet, I have observed that confidence, without humility, can be dangerous. I have seen it significantly limit a leader’s effectiveness. They stay their course, but may miss important input. People may follow, but not with their full spirit. Truly confident leaders are secure enough to embrace and share their humility. In the long run, their humility makes them stronger.

 

Michael Carroll describes the “talent of humility,” in his book The Mindful Leader. He shares that when leaders understand they are part of a much bigger scene that is not fully within their control, they are free to show up more human. It’s from that humility, that they can confidently show up to do the best work possible. They offer more of their whole selves to the moment.

Not doing is one side of finding success.

 

What's your list of things you would never do as a leader?

 

How often do you violate it? Do you ask for this list when you interview managers and executives? How many "wrong" things do you catch them at doing on a daily basis? Do you coach them on the spot in how to never do that again.

Leadership is About Balance

Leadership is About Balance | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Leadership is about finding your balance.

 

It is more than sorting through all the things that demand your attention. It is more than addressing conflicts and working out reasonable compromises. It is more than finding an efficient path through competing options and desires.

 

Leadership is about balance that encompasses the full spectrum of different perspectives.

Leadership is finding your own path which grows out of your core values and principles, is shaped by your vision, and helps you move toward your goals.

 

Leadership is recognizing your true self, and sharing yourself with the true selves around you.

It is not balancing the interests and demands that swirl around you. Leadership is finding the balance within you.
