With more teams working remotely – and more interactions happening via video – it’s becoming essential for leaders to be able to practice compassionate empathy, says CIO Saad Chaudhry. Or at least, practice “active listening.”
With leaders facing mounting pressures, it’s completely understandable to want to leapfrog technology. What you can’t leap, says CIO Saad Chaudry, is the ‘what, where, how, and when’ stage of planning and introspection.
Whether it’s implementing an EHR system or landing on the moon, there wouldn’t be any “giant leaps” if not for the sacrifices made by those who came before us, says Saad Chaudhry. “We don’t succeed alone.”
The hallmark of a good leader is the ability to pause, take in a situation with all its complexities, and move forward with the most balanced approach for your organization, says Saad Chaudhry.
