In this episode of Relationships at Work, communications and leadership nerd (and host) Russel Lolacher highlights the dangers of being an empathetic leader. 

Empathy is a vital ingredient to good and great leadership. However, it can also be a double-edged sword in how it can impact our ability to lead and the culture we're creating.  Yes, there are tons of benefits in being an empathetic leader, but it can also lead to burn out and avoidance. Russel breaks down how empathy can be a burden at work, and the many ways being too empathetic and not knowing how to manage that empathy can lead to fracturing a workplace culture.
