Management demands Empathy

Have you ever been in a situation where you were trying to explain something to your manager but you felt like he/she was just not be getting your message?

Well, many a time, the converse it true as well, in that many a time a manager may try to communicate a specific task, challenge or deadline to you, and find that you may not be receiving his intended message.

In so many such situations, it can really help if both parties just practiced some empathy and received the message with an open mind and by looking at it from the other party's perspective.

Empathy can play a pivotal role in taking your relationship with your manager (or your team) to the next level, and to the extent that you embrace it, it can substantially help you improve not just your working relationships but also your productivity and effectiveness.

I would encourage everyone to give this some serious thought and a serious shot!

Kind Regards,
