The People-Focused Leadership Series

The way we work has been transformed, and so too, has leadership. So-called “soft skills” such as empathy and awareness are no longer nice to have, but critical to what new leadership requires. In this series, we’ll explore six qualities of an effective and compassionate leader.

The acronym CIRCLE makes it easy to remember: Compassionate. Intentional. Resilient. Courageous. Learner. Engaged. Each course will discuss what they all mean in the context of leadership, our new work environment, and what it’s like to be a human being – intersectional and sometimes messy.
