Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • What is compassionate leadership? 
  • Being a good listener 
  • The epidemic of loneliness 
  • Making people happier and more productive 

Here’s a glance at this episode:

  • Compassionate leadership is all about empathy in action or the willingness to act upon what you understand from another person’s perspective. Compassion is not a weakness, it has helped many leaders develop productive teams and lead them to success for the whole organization.
  • Be a good listener. Don’t listen just to respond. Pause, and really hear what the other person is saying, feel what the other person is feeling. Respond with something genuine and heartfelt, rather than something rehearsed and common. 
  • Loneliness is a huge threat to our society. It’s not merely a feeling, it’s damaging our societal health and it also has physiological impacts. Bridging the gap between people by creating connections and restoring relationships is critical for healing our societal wounds. 
  • Companies rely on human resources and each single individual performs better when happier. As leaders, we have to focus on creating a happier and more connective culture in our organization. We have to make people feel like they belong and that they are supported.

 "We are all human resources. We perform better when we’re happier. What we should be aiming to do as leaders is to find ways to shift our culture so that we can have happier and healthier employees." —  Natalie Alcantara
