Hi, my name is Erin Thorp.
I’m so excited you stopped by!
I am speaking out, stepping up and disrupting the default that says expressing feelings is a career limiting move.
I am disrupting the long accepted norm that says there is no place for empathy in leadership.
I have the left brain logic of an engineer, the right brain creativity of an author and the heart of an empathic coach.
I have personally experienced – both as a leader and as a team member – the magic that happens when a leader steps into their emotions and provides permission for their team members to do the same.
With 5 generations in the workforce, we desperately need empathetic leaders who connect authentically and engage with deep vulnerability.

As a left-brained engineer and right-brained intuitive coach, I work with entry- and mid-level leaders—those who have the greatest impact on their company’s culture and day-to-day decisions.
I believe emotional intelligence and technical excellence aren’t mutually exclusive. In fact, both skills are imperative to becoming the confident, compassionate leader your team will eagerly follow.
Those skills often categorized as “soft”—connection, empathy, vulnerability—are actually the most difficult to learn but are key to creating leaders who make an impact in their personal lives, their company, and the wider world. I hold space without judgment and help leaders see themselves and others with curiosity.
There’s no “one size fits all” approach to leadership; each leader must discover and develop their own emotional intelligence and unique way of leading so they can have great results and even greater relationships.
