What is Empathic Leadership?
“Empathic leadership is meeting people where they are emotionally in order to understand their behavior. It's seeing situations from other people's perspectives; having the ability to connect with them; and make them feel seen, heard, and valued.”
What skills or competencies did you enhance through the coaching process?
“I'm learning how to tap into behaviors that don't come naturally to me, like being direct and inspirational. I'm a big believer in DISC!”
Share an example of a goal that you have realized as a result of coaching.
“I've become more comfortable with direct and goal-focused communication. This includes knowing when and how to say "no," setting expectations, and having more conversations face-to-face."
