Only people who are understood empathically and to whom you develop an attitude can be motivated. This does not mean emotionalism. Empathy in its four forms is an anchor that prevents employee turnover and generates added value.

Employee Binding: A Safe Attitude

Overview

A leader in today's world needs to take a firm, confident stance and not only keep employees connected to that Company but to find the right one in the first place and then to inspire it permanently. This requires a confrontation with the personal fire.

"Better a square something than a round nothing" is the motto. A firm attitude becomes proportionately more important the more uncertain the world threatens to become around us. Terms that play a central role in this are: interest, ambition, curiosity, courage, responsibility, but above all empathy.

Leadership: Fourfold E-factor

Overview

Managers who lack empathy can not empathize with their counterparts, do not understand their problems and therefore can not find an individual solution. Often do not want it at all. Anyone who wants to build an attitude to other people can not ignore their genuine interest in people. It is therefore essential that managers are guided by the quadruple e-factor:

  • Cognitive empathy: the ability to understand and understand the views of others.
  • Emotional empathy: the ability to empathize with other people.
  • Empathic affection: the ability to feel what other people just need.
  • Empathic decision-making: the ability to navigate between empathic understanding and hard confrontation.

Executives: Listening is what counts!

Overview

People who are only interested in ZDF - numbers, data, facts - should not take on leadership roles. Not least, not to exhaust yourself in this task. Executives who lack the e-factor are easy to identify and often fail in their leadership careers. This usually begins with the fact that they can not listen. People with a genuine interest in others not only hear what the other person tells them, but they are able to at least approximately recognize what the other person is feeling. Empathic people can also see through the "glasses" of the other, not only through their own.

They can and want to take on the world through different perception glasses. It is not about emotional compassion, but the empathetic understanding or understanding empathy with the other human's imagination. We are always on reception, but often not for our counterpart. Those who only listen with half an ear because their professional status demands it loses - in the end also the employee. Change and change in the company is characterized by emotional dynamics and not exclusively by numbers, data and facts to understand.

Employee motivation: Not everyone drives the same

Overview

An example where empathic skills are particularly prominent is the apparent motivators within a company. Where each employee is equally rewarded with bonuses or company cars solely for good performance, sooner or later, most will experience great dissatisfaction. Because not everyone is motivated by the same things. It may be more important for a single mother to have the flexibility to build up and break down overtime, or work in the home office as needed.

The trainee may want to be more attentive to his ideas, to be respected, and to take on more responsibility than a bonus of one half or more of the tax code. Of course, there are people in every business for whom money and appreciation are big drivers. The only way to find out where the individual motivators are and how to act accordingly is empathic empathy.

How Leaders Motivate Employees: Empathy is an attitude

Overview

Empathy is not only necessary in order to develop a stable attitude, but on the contrary: Empathy itself is already an attitude. An attitude based on the acceptance and acceptance of a person's basic individuality. In times marked by meaning and value discussions, this perspective is indispensable for successfully guiding companies and employees into the future. Because value creation is only generated by appreciation.

Not for nothing it says: "people apply to companies, but leave bosses." So if you continue to consider empathy as a feeling of shyness and as an unreflected understanding at any time for everything and everyone leaves great potential simply on the road. And nobody can afford that anymore in the VUCA world.

    That sounds very depressive. People without empathy are best advised to commit suicide ... they are useless and they can not learn it.
