Black Lives Matter
Empathy is about being heard, understood, and respected without judgement.
Protests and riots happen when the People are unheard, misunderstood, and disrespected.
Company walkouts and people quitting happen when employees are unheard, misunderstood, and disrespected.
The way to correct oppressive behavior is extremely complex AND possible. I believe it all starts in the same place with empathetic, compassionate, and kind listening. We must make leaders listen OR remove them from their position, period. Those individuals that listen and act will be tomorrow’s leaders.
With energy and love,
