How to Bring more Compassion & Empathy to Leadership
Every week on the SPARKED podcast, we invite a listener to share what’s going on in their work & life, then pose a specific question to Jonathan Fields and a rotating lineup of wise and kind mentors - the SPARKED Braintrust.
In today’s episode we’re in conversation with:
SPARKED BRAINTRUST ADVISOR: Karen Wright | Website
Karen is the founder of Parachute Executive Coaching, acclaimed executive coach, advisor to senior leaders for more than two-decades, and the author of two great books, The Accidental Alpha Woman and The Complete Executive.
LISTENER: Marcelle - Sparketype: Scientist/Warrior | Anti- Performer
QUESTION: Listener Marcelle, is looking at leadership in light of the pandemic, recent global events and conflicts and is asking what’s working? What’s not working? And how can she harness her skills to work towards solving some of these big problems. And, how do our Sparketypes fit into this conversation? Marcelle is curious to know how she can impact the future of leadership and to tackle training our leaders to have more compassion and empathy and potentially curb the ‘Great Resignation’ that we’re seeing across the globe.
