The Empathy Edge

By Maria Ross

Failed product launches. Furious customers. Dysfunctional teams. Many of the problems we face in the business world (and frankly, society) stem from the same root cause: Lack of empathy. Each week, brand strategist, author and speaker Maria Ross shares keen insights and inspiring interviews that prove empathy and compassion are the new paths to market-winning performance. Leveraging both inspiring stories and hard data, Ross connects empathetic leadership and brands to more innovation, happier stakeholders, and lucrative bottom-line results. You’ll walk away with actionable strategies to amplify your impact, and learn how compassionate business tactics can transform your organization from the inside out. The Empathy Edge podcast provides a quick dose of motivation, wisdom, and practical actions that executive leaders, entrepreneurs and change makers can use right now. Ready to infuse YOUR organization with more empathy? Tune in to learn why cash flow and compassion are not mutually exclusive.
