Unleashing the Power of Empathy to Reduce Stress and Drive Great Leadership
March 1, 2017
Hosted by Alise Cortez, PhD
“We work too much, sleep too little, love with half a heart, and wonder why we are unhappy and unhealthy,” says Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli. Is this modern day’s inevitable life dilemma? The good news is it doesn’t have to be. Effectively employing empathy has a surprising number of benefits, including lowering everyday stress levels and encouraging deeper, more meaningful connection between people. In the realm of work, great leaders using empathy can better tease out the potential in others by listening and learning who they are and what they could do. In this episode, we talk about the debilitating effects of stress, how we can rid ourselves of old negative stories about ourselves, and how performance addiction can really derail us, among several other compelling topics.
