    I'm an old retired middle level manager, and we never heard this type of motivational speeches before about how to manage. Every time Simon opens his mouth I am amazed, because he speaks to Perspective and Empathy and the need for Altruistic leaders as a way for businesses to sustain their forward movement and to treat their most important assets, their employees, as if they matter.
    If you can please pass this one to everyone on your mailing list. Businesses need to hear this more than they need profits in the short term.

    I'm not a businessman. I'm a teacher, but I believe what he said doesn't apply to only business. I want to make an environment where my students feel comfortable and willing to find their potentials. And this is what my principal should watch. When everything goes well, she doesn't appreciate our efforts, but she only criticizes us when something bad happens.

      Emotional intelligence is a made-up term. There have been a lot of papers written about it however it amounts to nothing more than "agreeableness" the term emotional intelligence was coined by some journalist. What does it mean anyway? That I can infer what you're thinking or feeling. Maybe I know exactly what you're thinking and feeling and just don't give two shits. How do you differentiate emotional intelligence from empathy or sympathy? By the way it turns out that people who lack agreeableness and are disagreeable are the ones that succeed in the workplace. Not the other way around. Don't feed into the hype. I know they teach this in schools but schools are often wrong this is one case of many. I do hope you got your bachelor's degree and a good score on your thesis. I wish you well. Life itself is a classroom you can learn everywhere.

    Empathy is an important and valuable trait indeed. When we express empathy towards others, we feel better about ourselves as well as the person receiving it. Sadly, in this world where we have to first and foremost care about ourselves, we can only show empathy at certain moments in our lives. To forget ourselves and to give to other's is very honorable, but serves no meaning unless we can fully take care of ourselves and do what is best for ourselves :)

    So true. It’s far less about homogenising staff and more about recognising, utilising then celebrating people’s individual strengths and achievements. Sadly, too many directors focus on humiliating staff in order to make themselves feel important - not conducive to a healthy environment. When things go wrong we’re supposed to focus on areas of improvement rather than berating staff for their mistakes.

    This is a brilliant talk.
    We focus so often on the "ideal" result in business, on an extremely irrational timetable, that we forget that both time and, _more importantly_, emotionally invested *people* lay the foundation for the ideal. A slow quarter or year doesn't spell permanent loss for shareholders. The greatest businesses that exist today *ALL* started before they IPOed.
    Passion drives success and nothing is less passion-motivating than rigid performance metrics, disconnected or metric-based management, or a cultural fear of failure.

    This is a beautiful and vivid introduction to Empathy, for people who lack empathy, and want to learn to be more effective leaders.
    I think it is important to talk about the 'shadow side' of empathy. It is possible to experience other people's feelings so vividly, that you 'take on' and even get totally lost in them. Unconsciously, I believe this is why our general culture has numbed out empathy - people are afraid of each other. For those of us who are waking up increasingly subtle and powerful empathic awareness, this is a very real and concerns.
    I believe people are avoiding being more empathic, not just because we haven't been taught how to empathize, but because we haven't practiced how to empathizer AND THEN LET GO and stay centered within YOU.
    For me, Compassion is the element that breaks through the confusion. Genuine compassion is never patronizing. Yet compassion also creates healthy distance - it helps us remember who's feelings these are originally in a way that takes the fear out of being close to suffering.

    There isn't a single downside about the things he says. If everyone feels more secure and fulfilled in their work environment they are more happy. If they are happier they are doing their job better and are more friendly to the customers. Satisfied and happy customers means more job for the company itself 😊. There are so many aspects in life that depend on how we are treated and how we treat others.

    As a single mother raising a son in New York, I was laid off right before Christmas more than once. The ones that stand out are the time a money manager laid me off because his annual returns were shitty and he decided to bring in an arbitrage trader to boost them, so my little salary was needed to pay for trades. The other was because two women who had more influence over the president of the company decided they didn't like, pure mean girls sh*t and I was "let go because things aren't working out". They had to hire three people to replace me to do the same work.
