Empathy is My Superpower

I always wanted a superpower.  X-ray vision or to be faster than a speeding bullet.   We realize truths about ourselves in the strangest of moments.  My truth is I cannot see through concrete walls or even run at the speed close to a bullet.  My superpower is empathy.  The reality is that I must harness that power and use it wisely.  While it is abundantly documented that empathy is a mandatory skill to be a good leader, how to use it is not as widely documented.  We can learn (some of us quicker than others) how to be kind, humble and aware.   It’s much harder to learn how to balance empathy with action.

Why is Empathy the Most Important Leadership Skill?

Do you realize that you spend most of your time either pitying yourself or patting yourself on the back? These are not admirable traits, especially for someone who is supposedly so adept at managing people. It seems as if self-pity is your super power.

    You spot it you got it. I am human and the journey is to find that middle ground, and to show better to help others.
