The incidents of the last two years exposed a need for compassionate and empathetic leadership. This was grossly missing from leaders from all sectors. If you’re in a job search today and aspire to arrive higher on the leadership ladder, showing these attributes will get you noticed. I am talking with Magalie Rene to discuss how compassion and empathy are needs employers are looking for.

Highlights from our conversation:
- The racial awakening (George Floyd events), pandemic shutdown, burnout, and the vaccine controversy showed the need for compassionate and empathetic leadership.
- Perception by many people is anything softer than the usual line leadership will lead to a lack of accomplishment and reaching your goals.
- Magalie says there’s a “remote revolution.”
- Leaders need to support in bridging compassionate leadership, wellbeing, and belonging.
- Magalie states, “Instead of allowing it to keep you constricted and small and fit in a box, right? Use the fear as a catalyst to do something different, to step outside of your comfort zone and get excited about being uncomfortable, get excited about being afraid because that’s, that means it’s an opportunity for your next.”
- She recommends personal development from any source.
- Magalie recommends reading “You Can Heal Your Life,” by Louise Hayes.
