Empathy Is The Key

Sponsored Content provided by June Gunter - Co-Founder and CEO, TeachingHorse

In a recent HBR Article entitled “What Does It Mean to Be a Manager Today?", authors Brian Kropp, Alexia Cambon, and Sara Clark provide insight into what will be required of managers for the foreseeable future.
 

“To be successful in this new environment, managers must lead with empathy. In a 2021 Gartner survey of 4,787 global employees assessing the evolving role of management, only 47% of managers are prepared for this future role. The most effective managers of the future will be those who build fundamentally different relationships with their employees.”


How will we prepare ourselves to lead in this new environment that demands advanced levels of skill in building trust, presence, and empathy? Truthfully, that is why TeachingHorse is here. Who you are and how you lead shows up when you’re with a horse. The fastest way to advance your leadership skills is with an accurate awareness of your current beliefs and behaviors. Horses reflect these beliefs and behaviors to you within minutes of meeting you.

To earn the trust and confidence of a horse, you must demonstrate that you know yourself, can see them for their full potential, and have awareness of your surrounding environment. Next, your job is to choose a direction in the midst of uncertainty and set a pace for moving forward. Ultimately, the horse will require you demonstrate to them that you are trustworthy. Practicing these skills with horses enables you to embody them with the people you lead. It really is that simple.
