Empathy Is A Superpower To Use At Work
Being called sensitive or emotional as a child often came with negative connotations, and is generally seen as a bad quality to bring to the workplace. I’m here to tell you how wrong that is.
Being ‘sensitive’ can also mean you’re empathetic, compassionate, and understanding, which are critical traits of any successful leader.
In this episode, I explain how you can use empathy as a superpower to accelerate your career, including:
- It makes you better at forming connections with colleagues and clients.
- You can celebrate others’ successes.
- You know how to give and receive feedback.
Empathy does not come naturally to everyone. If you have it, use it like the superpower it is and start leveling up your career now!
