An attitude of compassion, by the way, doesn’t mean looking down on
someone, or pitying them for their lack of business savvy or skills. Instead,
compassion is based on respect. Indeed what business needs today more
than ever—and what the Millennials, with their different way of looking at things, generally
bring to our business environments—is empathy. Empathy is the
ability to put ourselves in the shoes of our coworkers who are struggling,
to understand and share what they’re going through.
This develops true leadership ability and more productive and profitable company cultures.
