Three ways to be a more empathetic leader

January 23, 2020

Empathy, our ability to sense other people’s emotions and to imagine what they may be thinking or feeling, enables us to become better leaders of ourselves and others. If we can’t understand or appreciate what other people feel, how can we expect to relate to them and lead them successfully? And, if you don’t take time to understand what you’re feeling, how can you lead yourself?

A marathon takes months of planning, preparation, and anticipation. After more than a year of training and waiting, I ran the NYC Marathon on November 4. But, just a few hours after finishing, I found myself dealing with an unforeseen and upsetting reality.
