Empathy and Love in Business with Dan Pontefract

The “human whisperer” Dan Pontefract is here, talking all things empathy and how it connects to the ways we run our businesses and our lives. How does it fit into our daily lives? Author of Love-Based Leadership, Dan is driven by the question: How do love and empathy fit into our businesses? Further, what allows a business to click? What values and motivations and obstacles come together to form each organization, and how does that organization run based on each combination?

Dan shares his story of how he got to where he is today…it’s a story of the need for perseverance, a strong sense of self, and the ability to say no to what doesn’t feel right for us, even when others may not understand. It is only then that we can be the most wholesome and authentic leaders possible. Dan shares some amazing tips about leadership- what makes a good one?

How do we find the lessons at every part of our journey even when we are working our way up the ladder to what Dan calls “workplace actualization?”

This conversation got us thinking about leadership and what it requires on all levels.
