What does this mean? It means you no longer need to stifle your emotional instincts in order to succeed, especially if you’re the boss.
The goal of pretty much every businesses is to make money. All the same, there are other important elements to being successful. For instance, business leaders ought to be compassionate. For some, this may seem like some hippy-esque nonsense that won’t help a bottom line, but there’s actually a case for being an empathic leader.
There are many reasons why leaders ought to consider embodying more of these human skills—one, they breed trust among underlings; two they make for a more cohesive work culture—and, as three business leaders told Fast Company during this year’s Innovation Festival, these sorts of human skills are greatly in demand.
