The world requires a new paradigm, where empathy is innovation and vulnerability is strength.

Quite agree with this :-)
Thanks for the great curation Maria Rachelle. Starting with my mother, some of the most influential leadership mentors I have had are women. This research makes a lot of sense to me!
Especially the following section:
Empathy Is Innovation. While leaders spend considerable time and effort trying to envision markets and pushing out innovation, empathy can often generate simple, yet breakthrough ideas. In her years working as an advocate for charities in Britain and abroad, Anna Pearson noticed a pattern: there were many people who wanted to volunteer — but were too busy (or had schedules too varied) to commit to a cause.
To bridge the gap between what volunteers could give and what people need, Anna re-imagined volunteering on a very small scale. Her London-based non-profit Spots of Time connects organizations with people who can give an hour or so at a time, and often at a moment’s notice. The lesson? Anna trained her empathy not just on beneficiaries of charity but also on volunteers. That kindness and sensitivity to others was the catalyst for creativity.
Thanks for sharing this Al!
