The Data Standard

Empathetic leadership? with Chris Hutchins at Northwell Health
Chris Hutchins, VP, Chief Data & Analytics Officer at Northwell Health, joins The Data Standard to discuss how to practice empathetic leadership skills.

Episode Summary

Empathy is a right-brain activity, the kind that many people consider a touchy-feely discipline—a soft skill, as it’s called these days. But at its core, empathy is a valued currency. Sometimes leaders need to get out of their own shoes and put on someone else’s to truly understand what is happening around them.

Cultivating empathy as a leadership skill allows you to create bonds of trust. It gives you insight into what others are feeling and thinking, and it helps you understand their reactions. At its foundation, empathy informs your decision-making by sharpening your perceptions and intuition.
