Failure Brief #4-Leading with Empathy The Failure Sessions

    • Business

This week's failure brief is designed to get you thinking about how you are showing up with your peers, friends, and teams during this incredibly challenging period of time.  

Early in my career as an individual contributor, I focused on results and production first.  I always thought that people who were going through challenging periods of time were using it as a way to mask their inability to produce first.  I was completely wrong in this way of thinking, and it took me some moments as a leader to really understand the importance of leading with empathy first.  

Today, the people in your circle need you more than ever.  Take time out of your day to check in with people and show you care.  Everyone is going through challenging moments, separate yourself from the pack by showing your empathy.  As a leader, you will get 10x the production out of building relationships centered on care and empathy first.
