While we want others to understand what it is like to walk in our shoes, walking in their shoes is not as appealing.
Leaders need the ability to sympathize and empathize with others. Thus, we need to see through their eyes.
What will we see when looking through the eyes of others?
We may see ourselves differently.
We may see more hurt or pain.
We may see greater joy, love, faith, and peace.
We may also see different levels of need we that overlooked before.
Whenever we see and feel what others see and feel, our leadership becomes “others-directed.”
