Empathy and listening skills are needed when dealing with people
Condemnation drives people faster and deeper into sin than any other thing. Jesus did not come to condemn the world; he came to save it. He came to save everyone from the bondage of sin and bring them into the glorious liberty that can only be experienced in God.
So, empathy and listening skills are needed when dealing with people. We are not expected to be quick to provide responses. We must listen attentively to what the person is saying and even what the person is failing to say. Scripture says, “Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath” (Jas. 1:19, KJV).
Caring for others is very important in leadership. It has been said that, no one cares how much you know, until they know how much you care. True leaders are able to care for those who they lead. Until you have demonstrated care enough, people won’t be willing to follow you.
As a leader whenever you are approached, you must be willing to listen and be present in the moment as people share their heart with you. Many times, a leader may be distracted by the hundreds of things that he has to do. When someone shows up and wants to talk, it is necessary that you put away every distraction and focus on that person. Everyone is important, and it is the responsibility of leaders to ensure that problems are solved.
