– Softening the Edge
The world’s first book to fuse storytelling and corporate experience to focus on our global empathy deficit, and its tragic impact on our people and our workplaces, is now a bestseller worldwide!
Softening The Edge bravely breaks the corporate conversation about our worryingly low empathy levels wide open.
A bestseller in four markets and written by a female millennial leader, this book takes inspiration from some of the world’s most powerful opinion leaders – President Barack Obama, Jacinda Ardern, Oprah Winfrey – and creates a compelling case for a global organisational empathy intervention. The leadership book, embedded within the tumultuous true story of a business turn around, is equal parts inspiration, business lesson and personal story.
By 2022, estimates suggest 46% of the workforce will be comprised of and be led by millennials. By failing to proactively nurture empathy in our future leaders, we are failing to protect our future. Today, most of us do not enjoy our work, burn out is at all-time high, depression is impacting over 33,000,000 people and the younger generation is leaving the corporate workplace in droves.
We need an intervention. Softening The Edge is exactly that.
“Creativity is born from the heart, from a gut feel, an intuitive response, or a moment of madness, but never a spreadsheet. Creativity comes from empathy.”
