Empathy has always been a critical skill for leaders, but it is taking on a new level of priority in today’s times. Far from a soft approach, it can drive significant business results for your company.

New research demonstrates the importance of empathy in everything from innovation to employee retention. Great leadership requires a fine balance of skills to create the conditions for employee engagement, happiness, and performance. Empathy tops the list of what today’s leaders must get right.

Full gourmet hot breakfast catered by the Salem County Vocational Technical School’s Culinary Arts Students.
