Empathy shines in almost every professional article as one of the most important leadership competencies. Many emphasize how empathetic behavior can be beneficial, persuasive, motivating, and more, and how it can be learned.
nfortunately, due to its overuse, empathy may face the same fate as authenticity in the long run: after losing its true meaning, it sinks into the buzzword abyss.
Until then, we should take the opportunity to clarify what empathy is generally understood to be and what it actually means. This way, everyone can unleash its full potential and prepare themselves against its potential downsides in a timely manner. The most important point to note: compassion does not promote self-leadership or leadership competence.
