The concept of leadership has taken on a different meaning over the past couple of years as businesses have had to navigate some very challenging issues. With a vast majority of workers going remote at the start of the pandemic, and as many working parents also became the primary in-person educators for their children, great leadership has taken on a more critical role. Perhaps one of the most challenging aspects of the pandemic has been the loss of human connection, leading to increased amounts of anxiety, depression, and otherwise.

We speak often on this podcast about the role that empathetic leadership plays in today’s business management. Businesses that have a higher concentration of bosses rather than leaders will not succeed in today’s economy. Simply put, this Great Resignation trend is a clear message that workers will no longer tolerate working without purpose, meaning, or a feeling of being valued by their employer.
