Benefits of Empathetic Leadership

Empathetic leadership delivers tangible benefits to organizations, especially if corporate leaders succeed in instituting more empathetic cultures.

Empathy reduces resistance to change; it helps leaders anticipate various types of resistance to change and handle them gently.

When corporate leaders create cultures of empathy with high love quotient (LQ), it makes organizations more attractive to talented innovators who hate bureaucracy and look for an inspiring and empowering environment.

Empathy brings out the best in employees. Being led empathetically, employees perform better because human beings have a tendency to work better when they feel being loved and cared about.

Empathy makes collaboration and creative teamwork easier. A star team performs better than a team of stars. Empathy celebrates complementary capabilities of team members and makes teams more collaborative, innovative and successful.

"Empathy allows us to create bonds of trust, it gives us insights into what others may be feeling or thinking; it helps us understand how or why others are reacting to situations, and informs our decisions." ~ Bruna Martinuzzi
