Empath Leader



What is the distinction between empathy in leadership and Empath Leader?

Empathy and being an empath are related concepts, but they have distinct meanings. Empathy refers to the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. It involves being able to put oneself in someone else's shoes, perceive their emotions, and respond in a way that acknowledges and validates those feelings. An empath, on the other hand, is often used to describe a person who is particularly sensitive to the emotions and energy of others. This term is more associated with a heightened or deepened capacity for empathy.

It's important to note that the concept of being an empath has often been discussed in more spiritual or metaphysical contexts, and was not considered to have a universally accepted scientific basis. This has changed in the last decade or so because of people like Dr. Judith Orloff, Harvard graduate, psychiatrist, and bestselling author, who pioneered the conversation about Empaths and their distinct profile and needs. Dr. Orloff identifies as an Empath, treats Empaths, and teaches empaths how to navigate a world that hasn’t fully understood them. Dr. Orloff, amongst others, will be highlighted here, have brought credibility to the Empath and given them a place in the human tapestry. 

An Empath Leader is an empath who is sovereign and stands firmly in their convictions. Empath Leaders display competence, courage, curiosity, conviction, and a kind heart and are most often found building bridges to more whole and healed individual, familiar, organizational, and societal structures.
