The majority of firms now use employees as the face of the organization. So, as a manager, you will want to understand how your employee thinks, feels, and operates.

The same thing goes for teams.

As a manager, you will need to understand the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors of your team members. That’s not to say you can’t use empathy and understanding to help your employees, but you may find yourself feeling a bit uncomfortable as a result.

The next generation of leaders will have their own workplace, and you will want to see what they’ve done. It’s a bit like running for election, where your candidate is a pretty good candidate. Like your bosses, they’ll need to think about how they’re doing to make sure that the leadership of your company is as effective as the leadership of your competitors.

When it comes to leadership, I think empathy and understanding are like the two most important skills to have in your toolkit at your workplace. Empathy is the skill of being able to imagine what your employees are feeling and to understand their perspective. Understanding is the skill of knowing the right information to bring to the table and of letting people know what their options are if they are to make a decision without being told just what is needed.

As I wrote in my recent post, Empathy and Understanding will go hand-in-hand with your ability to be honest and not just with your employees. You can be an honest leader by sharing what your employees need and not just telling them what they want and need to hear, which is the most effective way to get your employees to understand and accept your leadership. The ability to be honest and not just with your employees is the ability to be empathetic to your employees.

When I’m talking about empathy, I’m talking about people’s ability to relate to and understand our emotions. Empathy is all about being able to hear our internal dialog and not just our external one.

Most managers of every type of company have a few different types of empathetic.

When it comes to empathy most managers are all about the communication aspect. The ability to listen, take the time to understand, and then communicate with your employees. In this way, most managers don’t just get the job done. They also help their employees feel more secure with their job.

Empathy is a type of empathy where the person you are talking to can feel what you are feeling. In this sense, a manager should have the ability to understand your feelings and have the wherewithal to communicate with you. The ability to be empathic usually comes with a high degree of confidence. If you are unsure of how much empathic you have, read up on the theory beforehand.

Wow! I can't believe we finally got to meet in person. You probably remember me from class or an event, and that's why this profile is so interesting - it traces my journey from student-athlete at the University of California Davis into a successful entrepreneur with multiple ventures under her belt by age 25
