August Hot Takes: How to Run Your Business With Empathy

Welcome to August Hot Takes! To celebrate the podcast’s 2nd anniversary, we’re shaking things up with some solo episodes from yours truly. I’m answering common questions attendees ask during my keynotes and trainings.

How can I run my business with empathy?

Whether you are part of a billion dollar organization or you are a solopreneur, there are valid business reasons to embrace empathy as part of your business model. And it warms my heart to get this question, as it means that people are finally putting a spotlight on empathy as a way to run a more sustainable, successful business.  We want to embrace empathy in how we lead our teams and run our businesses. But we’re not always sure how. Let’s talk about the ways in which you can infuse empathy into your business and reap the rewards.

Thanks for being here and enjoying the podcast. Would love to know what you think of this Hot Takes format.

Key Takeaways:

  • Easy ways you can practice empathy at work start with asking questions and being an active listener.
  • State your common goals out loud – it reminds everyone involved that you’re actually on the same team and want the same things.
  • Your community is made of real people with needs, desires, goals and aspirations, not numbers, subscribers, or dollar signs.

“It’s very easy to show empathy at work. It’s not as complicated as people think. It just requires self awareness and emotional intelligence.” —  Maria Ross
