Sometimes we search for "strong" leaders in life or the workplace. But, are these leaders always the best? In this Three Thought Thursday we take a look at how a "healthy" leadership approach, guided by emotional awareness and empathy, can be more influential than some of the "strongest" leaders. Relaxing our grip on the control-meter and listening to both the emotions of others and our own emotions can help reveal opportunities for deep team/community growth. As summarized by the Harvard Business Review, "Leadership's First Commandment [is]: Know Thyself." But remember that, as with all life, there is always a fine balance.
Not sure where to start your journey towards "healthy" leadership? Consider our
