Leading with empathy is the key to any successful leader. Empathy simply is stepping in the shoes of others. Becoming them. Understanding their plights. Sharing their feelings; and providing solutions from a third-party perspective.
To be a great leader, a great teacher, a super father, a great mother, a remarkable wife, a fantastic friend, a decent and effective president; or, to gain or regain your potential as a wonderful human being, just practice “sincere empathy” in your environment. And your success is guaranteed.
