Winner’s Best Practice

Empathy is a super power. Empathy does not necessarily mean forgiveness, although forgiving easily is important. It means to understand one another. It can be applied universally. Having empathy for a customer, for example, means to understand their journey and how to improve your product or user experience. Empathy for a co-worker Is vital when life takes a difficult turn. Empathy for art, what does the book, painting or song mean in a deeper way. My leadership style focuses on understanding the deeper value of individuals and their experiences. This allows them to bring the best of themselves forward.
