Why Empathy Has A Huge Impact On Team Performance And Leadership Excellence

Length 45:20

Thank you for joining us in the TIGERS Den. Today we are discussing empathy. Empathy is the 4th of the six TIGERS Principles required for outstanding group performance.  The other five TIGERS Principles are trust, interdependence, genuineness, risk and success.

If you are a TIGERS licensed facilitator, HR Director, Manager, Team Leader or Business Owner, we will be discussing why empathy has such a huge impact on team performance and leadership excellence.  We will also be discussing what happens when empathy is missing in leadership behavior.

In this discussion, you will learn:

1. Why empathy is important to making decisions where a lot of people lose.

2. How to avoid hiring people with low empathy.

3.  How to distinguish empathy from sympathy.

4. How to help leaders with low empathy to improve their leadership skills.
