Leading with Empathy in a crisis is no small feat. For those of us in leadership positions, the challenge posed by the Coronavirus is without precedent. Aside from the strategic challenges presented to us, we must care for our families, teams and ourselves. We navigate an unknown territory whilst providing the support, motivation and real inspiration to those that rely on us. As leaders, we must recognise that the health of our teams and businesses is at stake. The key is ensuring both compassionate and conscious management in adversity.
Conscious Leadership and Character
Now, more than ever, will the character of our leaders is being tested. As Helen Keller once famously said:
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved”.
Hellen Keller, American author
At Gaia Coaching we believe that true, conscious leadership is built upon the foundational commitment of honesty, compassion and empathy for others, and that during these ever-changing times, we must develop and maintain compassionate and conscious management in adversity.
We invite you to listen to Gaia Coaching’s latest interactive training, with Community Manager at The Executive Centre, Kim Seychell. In this webinar, we delve deep into how you can lead your business – and your life – with empathy, with real practical insights and takeaways you can apply today.

An Executive Coaching Point Of View (ExCoVi)
As an Executive Master Coach and Trainer, I am very fortunate to work with various talented, high-achieving and wonderful people. Every time I coach, I learn something new about my client, our society and myself. The summary of thoughts is based on emerging themes across all kinds of interactions I have; be it one-on-one executive coaching, group coaching or coaching training. ExCoVis are meant to invite people to think differently based on scientifically or statistically proven understanding and lateral thinking. None of the content is meant to offend anyone in any way and is rather an invitation to discuss different executive points of view with respect and integrity. The content is shared to raise awareness and to inspire people to integrate their conscious and unconscious mind and therefore transform unconscious behaviour into conscious behaviour.
