Compassionate leadership is a combination of empathy, and good leadership skills. They lead from the head and the heart, they understand that their employees are people before employees, and people have needs. Compassionate leaders treat their employees the way they would like to be treated and focus on developing a work environment where staff feel valued and safe.

Unfortunately, compassionate leadership in the workplace is a rare quality because the majority of leaders have been trained to believe that the workplace should be free from emotions. Personal problems should be left at home and the only acceptable attitude to display is a positive one. All issues are brushed under the carpet, and toxic positivity is forced on employees. I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you will never grow your organization in an environment like this.
