Are You a Compassionate Leader?

Tiferet of Malchut

Hi everyone, Jordan Drayer, the savvy millennial voice actress who is working to be a compassionate leader. Today is six weeks and three days of the Omer. If you want to know more about the Omer and how it works, check out the links in the description.

Today is Tiferet of Malchut, looking at the compassion and harmony in leadership. It's important to understand where your subordinates are coming from, to listen to their fears and anger if they bring them to you, if you want to continue to be loved and respected as a leader. Otherwise they may plot mutiny if you never heed them.

If a teacher doesn't taken into account the time of day and other events in the children's lives, they fail to see the whole person. If a company boss doesn't allow for their employees to be human and sometimes fail or even have bad days, well, I guess they could replace that employee easily, if all they see is numbers. But if you want to be human at your company, then you have to allow for people to be moody or even hyper on different days, though of course encourage professionalism.

Tiferet is also about balance and harmony, which is what we should hope to bring about as leaders. This means clear instructions, organization, delegation, knowing your team well in order to use each person's strengths and maybe also to keep certain people away from each other.

Delegating can be hard, but this is compassion towards yourself and possibly the other person. You're giving yourself less to do and you're making them important by asking them to do it. This is good for children as well as adults, though adults may not like doing menial tasks like mail sorting.

Even if it's only two of you doing a collaboration, you have to balance the work compassionately. My podcast partner Dalia Ramahi and I with our podcast Blooming Voices, I do the audio editing, she does the social media. We work together to find times to record. When she or I have to cancel, we're compassionate with each other and find other times. If either of us feels we're getting off track with our theme, we speak up.

Today's exercise is to increase efficiency in a place where you have power. Maybe this means less employees, less collaborators, or a better process of everyone reviewing everyone else's work. I'll increase my English teaching efficiency by cutting down on me talking and research better ways to get the students to progress as I want them to. Thank you as always, please like and share, and I'll see you tomorrow.
