Are you leading with your heart ?

“What’s important now are the characteristics of the brain’s right hemisphere: artistry, empathy, inventiveness, big-picture thinking. These skills have become first among equals in a whole range of business fields.” ― Daniel H. Pink

I found this short film clip below helpful when it comes to expressing empathy and leading from the heart. The example given by Brene Brown can be applied to your personal life, organization or within your community. It focuses on the difference between empathy and sympathy.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!

  1. Thanks Jeanette for this. This is a great video, I have seen it, used it in trainings, but forgot how powerful it was and should be a ‘top ten list’ of things to share. So very very appreciative of your thoughtfulness in bringing this to us.

    I hope you are doing well, and that the coming of spring and summer is another ‘unfurling’ towards your goals. I am continuing with the relaxation and walk of life (sometime distracted by the ‘pretty things’ in windows). I feel more relaxed about things in life, and do feel unblocked on many fronts. While some of my mini-programmes have not ‘taken’, other doors and windows seem to be appearing, so I plan to walk or crawl through them all!

    Big hug,
