What would happen if leaders could not fire employees?
Like their kids, for example. Leaders are not responsible for the job or the numbers, but for the people who are responsible for the job. They need empathy: being concerned about the human being, not only the outcome. By the way, that’s what we all want, no? And to say: “I feel I can be myself”.
Feeling, as one of my friends says, Safe, Seen and Supported. We all have the capacity to be a leader and to have empathy. It is just a skill we have to practice and there are ways to do that. It will change our decisions, the way we see the world and our perspective.
