“Empathetic leadership is partly about understanding where each employee is coming from and being able then to put that understanding into action in the way you motivate that person as well as build their abilities and skills -- and to do it in the best way for their career development as well as your team’s performance,” says Alison Konrad, professor of organizational behavior and chair, women in management, at the Richard Ivey School of Business.
Flexible work hours are also a way for smaller to mid-size companies to compete against large corporations for quality workers, said Alison Konrad, a professor of organizational behaviour at Western University's Ivey School of Business on London, Ont.
