It’s time for a new vision of leadership.
One with more heart, more connection, more honesty, and deeper vulnerability. Whether you have been newly promoted to a leadership position, or have been in the seat for many years there is something for everyone in this book.
I discovered my greatest strength by reframing
what I had perceived to be my greatest weakness.
~ Erin Thorp,
Author, Inside Out Empathy
I’m so glad you’re here. Please make yourself at home and take a look around.
I am passionate about writing, teaching, mentoring, and coaching others to embrace their emotions, connect with empathy, and deeply engage the people they lead. I believe that the very foundation of building inclusive, diverse teams is to recognize, celebrate, and leverage our differences.
Reading Inside Out Empathy is the first step in your journey to becoming a more effective leader that will touch every aspect of your life.
You may have noticed that employing the same skills and tactics you used in your role as a team member now that you’re a leader have left you with some major bumps and bruises. You may even fail at leadership. But this book is here to help you succeed as a leader. It will challenge you to learn new skills, dare you to try new approaches, and demand that you open up to vulnerability like you’ve probably never done.
After all, we don’t get anywhere new by doing the same old things!
The metaphors Erin uses to help us recognize our current ways and future way of being are life-changing. Like the perfect awakening to the person, we often know is inside but just can’t see. I am not an addictive person, but I am totally addicted to seeing what parts of me she will draw out next and to continue to see the results I am seeing in my business because of this work.
I love working with Erin. She is wise, thoughtful and creative in her coaching. Christine Bobye
“Enlightening stories and life experiences that I was able to connect and empathize with – a meta approach to strengthening empathetic relationships. The book is interlaced with multiple thought-provoking points and ideas to engage with team members; not just for leaders, but anyone involved in a team (or family!).”Nathan
“Prepare to be drawn into Erin’s leadership journey as she discovers her strengths and weaknesses. Great book for anyone looking to grow as a leader. It will open your eyes to the hidden lessons found in each challenge.”Arlene
I have read a lot of books about leadership and management and this one will forever stand out as having a refreshing, unique approach to leadership. The author is totally right – it is time for a new approach to leadership and it must begin with understanding the power of Empathy. Every new or experienced leader needs to read Inside Out Empathy.Corina
