Ashley’s takeaways from the DailyJo podcast with John Oberg 

Meet Ashley Connell from the Prowess Project! In this episode we have a fascinating conversation about the new variables of connecting remotely via Zoom calls, what that pivot has resulted in, and how it impacts our emotional intelligence as we lead. We also chat about the importance of helping each other find new opportunities as we move forward in our careers. Oh, and John drops the “F” bomb.

Takeaways:

1.  Empathy is KEY to leadership & women are naturally good at it

2.  The “OK trap” and how it’s hurting our relationships 

It’s tempting when you ask your colleagues how they are going on Zoom how they are, and not respond with follow-up questions to truly understand. Try the “Just ok? Why’s that?”

3.  Giving each other GRACE (especially now) 

#1 thing to remember, everyone is doing the best they can during COVID-19. Key to leadership and empathy is giving people grace.

Join conversations just like these in the Prowess Community.
