Think back in your past: who was your best boss? Why not become that person in your everyday business dealings with your employees? It probably starts with empathy. Listen to this podcast where Thomas Cox, the founder of Becoming A Best Boss talks about why empathy is so important to an organization’s overall success and gives some tips on how you can foster this powerful trait in your everyday life. When companies create empathy, they create happy workers, and happy workers create strong companies. And strong companies become investable companies. So if you’re seeking to raise money via crowdfunding, NOW you know why empathy is so important!
