As a society, we talk a lot about leadership. This concept has become it's own industry with books, lectures, podcasts, seminars and trinkets. Yet, in all of the various words expended on business, entrepreneurship, and leadership, there are few that discuss the role of empathy as a key to the development of emotional intelligence. If you are in a position of leadership and have a desire to improve your employee engagement as well as team development, there is great value in continuing to grow your own emotional intelligence as you deal with people from various backgrounds. To be a leader in developing others you must start by leading yourself to set an example for how growth is a both a priority as well as an ever evolving process for individuals and their teams. Read more in our article published in About Leader titled How to Lead With Empathy and give us your feedback on how you are developing yourself and your teams. Step out of your comfort zone, make some smart mistakes, build a thriving team and be the leader that your team deserves. If you are resistant to change as well as growing as a leader, you will continue to attract and manage the team that you deserve.
