Leading with Care and Compassion
At Apex HR, we believe that great leaders act with care and compassion. They do so in the good times as well as the bad.
Everybody is feeling anxious and are worried about financial hardship. We are in unchartered territory and there is a lot of uncertainty
True leaders remain caring and compassionate. They keep the ship steady. They are open and honest about challenges and provide reassurance where they can. They keep communicating. They’re emotionally intelligent enough to recognise the huge pressure that people are under and understand the human impact of what is happening around us.
It takes resilience and empathy to maintain a caring and compassionate approach whilst feeling the strain from operating under a great deal of stress. Leaders that operate from a people-centred mindset do it because it is the right thing to do.
When this crisis subsides, which it will, we will reflect on the examples of people-centred leadership and kindness we are seeing at the present time. We will share stories of how we stood together, despite the hardship, disruption and worry we were all feeling and experiencing but still looked after each other.
These examples will shape the future of our organisations and inspire our leaders in the post-covid 19 world.
