Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn did this interview at Wisdom 2.0 2013. As I listen to it today, I find myself thinking about events of a month ago, where I wanted to find empathy.
Now as I listen, I realize my goal was actually to find a way to act on my compassion. I was able to recognize her suffering, but felt unprepared/unable to appropriately do something to alleviate it. My colleague was having a rough time and I wanted to help but couldn't.
We have since had multiple discussions about that time in our journey and are much better for it.
How are you engaging as a mindful leader?
