We are living in a dynamic period for our nation. There’s the global pandemic, but there is also a civil unrest that should not be dismissed. Talking about race, equality and justice should not be reduced to politics. It is a topic that good leaders should address. It is good for the employees and it is good for business. As an emphatic leader, you need and want to listen to worries and concerns of all your employees. From business perspective, that will lead to higher satisfaction and retention rates, all resulting in increased profitability.
- When a disaster strikes, there is no way I would ignore something like that I would take action.
- So, when an employer hires black people, I feel the need to discuss race, I can’t ignore that either.
- I want all of my employees to feel care about and valued, so I must talk about these issues.
“If we ask, listen and seek to understand the problem, we can start to see how our actions can help solve it.”
