The connection between empathy and innovation
Empathy has come to the forefront of valued leadership traits. Over the last few years of vast uncertainty, this attribute has played a key role in supporting employees. It will continue to gain importance as employees continue to seek work environments that support their needs.
Host Kelly Manthey, Group Chief Executive of Kin + Carta Americas, was recently joined by guest speaker Heather Deggans, Vice President, Go-to-Market Strategy, Global Partner Solutions at Microsoft, for a women CIO roundtable that included tech leads from a range of businesses.
The focus of the discussion was on what it means to lead with empathy and how this leadership trait ultimately promotes a culture of innovation in a tech enterprise.
