The Secret To Building A High-Performance Team? Compassion
Compassionate leadership is not just a "nice to have" when times are good.
In fact, it's a scientifically proven approach to better team performance and stronger talent retention.
In this feature Forbes Council article, South End Partners President and Founder Casey Huebsch talks about how leaders can use compassionate leadership to drive results, improve performance and boost engagement.
Research shows that organizations and leaders who value and show compassion have employees who are less likely to burn out and who are more engaged with and committed to their work.
Being a compassionate leader means coaching and guiding your team toward success. It's not about reducing workload or ignoring targets and KPIs. It doesn't mean accepting bad behavior or avoiding providing critical feedback and coaching. It's about helping your team become highly engaged and high-performing so they can achieve the results you are looking for.
