(Empathy at Work) How Important Is Empathy To Successful Management?

(Empathy at Work) How Important Is Empathy To Successful Management? | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Research indicates empathy is a valuable management attribute. Yet only 40% of managers are "proficient or strong" at it.

 

Very important, according to one solid study on the topic. The research, from DDI, found that empathy (the ability to understand and share the feelings of another) is a  "critical driver of overall performance" for management.

 

In the study, "listening and responding with empathy" was highly correlated with key management skills including coaching, engaging, and making sound decisions, as well as overall performance.

 

Despite this importance, the study also concluded that only "40% of frontline leaders" were "proficient or strong in empathy.

If your employees aren't learning, you're not leading

If your employees aren't learning, you're not leading | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

There's a strong positive relationship between how much people learn on the job and how much they love their job. Employees who score high on survey questions like "I will have to learn new skills to achieve my assigned goals for this year" have higher scores on questions such as:

"I consider myself a high performer""The work I do makes a difference in people's lives""I recommend this company to others as a great place for people to work""I recommend my boss to others as a great person to work for."

Unfortunately, we know from the study "Are SMART Goals Dumb?" that only 42% of workers say they are always or frequently learning on the job, while another 39% percent say they are never or rarely learning.

(Empathic Leadership) Empathy Is An Essential Leadership Skill -- And There's Nothing Soft About It

(Empathic Leadership) Empathy Is An Essential Leadership Skill -- And There's Nothing Soft About It | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

I get tired of hearing about “soft skills,” even when it’s acknowledged they are important. No less a hard-muscled body than the U.S. Army, in its Army Field Manual on Leader Development (one of the best resource on leadership I’ve ever seen) insists repeatedly that empathy is essential for competent leadership.

 

Why?  Empathy enables you to know if the people you’re trying to reach are actually reached.  It allows you to predict the effect your decisions and actions will have on core audiences and strategize accordingly.  Without empathy, you can’t build a team or nurture a new generation of leaders.  You will not inspire followers or elicit loyalty. Empathy is essential in negotiations and sales:  it allows you to know your target’s desires and what risks they are or aren’t willing to take.

Remember when emotions i the workplace where taboo. "Business is no place for emotions", and if you showed emotions as a leader there was talk at the water cooler about being fit for the job. Finally, the reality that emotions are integral part of work and leadership. The key is being emotionally intelligent, "Emotional intelligence involves dealing with our emotions so that they serve–rather than undermine–your leadership."

6 Signs to Instantly Identify Someone With True Leadership Skills

6 Signs to Instantly Identify Someone With True Leadership Skills | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

What are the defining attributes of great leaders? That's the age-old question thought leaders and scholars galore have been attempting to answer in mountains of books and literature. 

 

While great leadership, to an extent, can be personal and subjective to the follower, there are universal principles you can't argue with (but you can try). Speaking of those thought leaders and scholars, here are six traits that keep surfacing over and over again in the leadership literature and best-sellers.

1. They challenge their own assumptions.

Great leaders may be smart and know a lot, but they are humble enough to recognize there are smarter people in the room that they can learn from. They don't restrict themselves from opinions and input outside of their own. They surround themselves with diverse perspectives to help them answer questions like, "How do I know my decision is the right one?" or "Is there a better course of action here?"

4 Ways To Help Employees Find Meaning At Work

4 Ways To Help Employees Find Meaning At Work | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Here’s a grim stat: More than half of your staff is ready to leave the company, finds a recent Gallup poll. Vacancies impact the productivity and bottom line of your company, but a survey from Globoforce’s Work Human Research Institute uncovered a reason people stick around. When asked the question, “What makes you stay at your company?” the number-one answer, representing 32% of respondents, was, “My job–I find the work meaningful.”

 

“Having a personal sense of meaning in one’s work was even more important than compensation, which ranked as the third most important reason for staying,” says Eric Mosley, CEO of Globoforce, a talent engagement software provider.

 

The trick is that meaning means different things to different people, says Becky Frankiewicz, president of the staffing and talent management provider ManpowerGroup North America. “Our NextGen Work research found that Boomers value being appreciated and recognized, younger people look for purposeful work that contributes to society, while people of all generations desire work that allows them to improve their skills and balance work and home,” she says. “Taking the time to find out what motivates your people individually is the first step to helping them find meaning in what they do.”

Humans have a need for social connection, positive reinforcement, and self-actualization. If you treat employees like human beings, you get more productive, happier and more content employees who are free to do their best work. When the workplace treat employees like robots or widgets that’s when things fall apart.

Increasing your leadership potential

Increasing your leadership potential | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership is a behavior, not a position or a title. While some executives exhibit remarkable leadership behaviors, others simply become good managers, never fully realizing their capacity for leadership. The latter will likely have the skill and determination to operate a program and possibly even oversee an organization. It is the former, however, who will successfully guide an organization toward unlocking its true potential.
