Show Notes

In this episode of The Happy Leader, I explore the significance of empathy in leadership, discussing how it can be both a strength and a challenge. Empathy allows leaders to connect with their team on a deeper level, fostering innovation, engagement, and retention. However, overextending empathy can lead to emotional depletion and hinder leadership effectiveness.

I share the story of Sophia, a CEO who struggled with this balance, but through coaching, she learned to set boundaries and empower her team to solve their own challenges.

Learn how to use your empath abilities to your advantage and prevent it from making you take on the emotional toll and additional work of others.
