What inspired you to write your book on empathic leadership?

Empathy has become so important right now, at least in my mind, because of the pandemic’s effects on our hierarchy of needs, as Abraham Maslow stated. It really shook the foundation of our physiological safety, our love and belongings, and our interactions with people, so suddenly, we started feeling impacted by these things and had increased stress and anxiety in our lives. As part of this book, I'm collecting many stories and exploring all the adversity that the pandemic produced: the unemployment, the BLM riots, the inequalities, people suddenly losing their identities of going to an office. Everything just became revolved around the house with shelter in place, and it causes a lot of stress and strain upon humans. There are so many stories of pain and suffering in this world and true stories of people going above and beyond and being empathic in these times. It's very heartwarming to see how much humans have stepped up and demonstrated empathy. So I figured it was an apt time to express my passion to the world in the form of a book. Hopefully, it will be out by the end of this month.
