Leading by Example

What's Covered 

Research shows that employees want leaders with a human touch — someone who can stand in their shoes and demonstrate care, empathy, and guidance in helping them navigate the stresses of work. This has only become more important in recent years as employees navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, new remote working styles, and balancing their personal and professional lives.

During this time of “Great Resignation” when people are leaving their jobs for new roles, it’s critical that managers support employees’ mental well-being by creating a healthy work culture with principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging at its core. To do so, organizations need to give leaders the tools to support their employees with understanding and compassion.

In this report, you’ll learn about:
- What can happen when teams are stressed and burned out
- How leaders can learn to lead with compassion and recognize signs of burnout in their employees
- The value of investing in mindful leadership and healthy work cultures
