In today's episode Judith Germain speaks to Sophie Wade about adapting to different cultures and how to be an empathetic leader. How can we see the world through someone else's eyes and step away from our own perceptions. Judith looks at how some autistic people respond with empathy.

Sophie explains the three types of empathy and they discuss their relative differences and how this relates to empathetic leadership and inclusion. What are the empathy habits we can start doing?

This is an interesting conversation about empathy, culture and open mindiness.

Sophie Wade is a work futurist, keynote speaker, author of Empathy Works, and workforce innovation specialist. Over 500k learners have taken her LinkedIn courses.

Maverick leadership is all about thinking outside the box and challenging the status quo. It's about having the courage to take risks and the confidence to lead in a way that is authentic and genuine.

But amplifying your influence as a leader isn't just about having a strong vision or a big personality. It's also about having the right leadership capability and being able to execute on your ideas and plans.

The consequences of not having the right level of influence as a leader can be significant. Without the ability to inspire and motivate others, you may struggle to achieve your goals and make a real impact.
