As a leader, your behavior directly influences your employee’s behavior, which translates all the way through to your bottom line. Research of over 20,000 leaders confirms that empathy is the most critical driver of overall performance. Leaders that have a high level of empathy achieve greater results – period.
Why? Empathy directly affects time and money. It is a pathway to hard results.
Studies show that time and money can be quantified when you establish trust and when you don’t have trust with your employees. When trust is established, employees give leaders their best work. And there is a lot more that empathy can do for your team!
Yet everyone asks, "How do I do empathy?” Empathy is perceived as an intangible soft skill that is often difficult for leaders to understand.
