Impact storyteller and inspirational speaker, Mallory Brown, has accomplished more in her 33 years than some will accomplish in a lifetime. Her mission is to inspire individuals to create positive change using empathy, compassion, and empowerment. She is currently working on her “Walk A Mile” project, a “global marathon for women’s empowerment” where she walks 26 miles with 26 different women in need all over the world.
Mallory has dedicated her life’s work to being empathetic and seeing things from another’s perspective. In a survey conducted in the workplace by Mallory, 97% of people said that they want to make a positive impact on the world. However, employees on average say they feel their work is half as meaningful as it could be. Mallory believes that companies that encourage empathy in the workplace can leave employees feeling more fulfilled. She also believes that it builds better communities, encourages and embraces diversity, creates genuine connections, and increases employee happiness. Feeling with someone rather than feeling for them allows you to connect with them on an emotional level and helps you to not judge based on circumstance.
Compassion and empathy go hand-in-hand. Everyone has the ability to be compassionate and once you allow yourself to feel that compassion for others, it will be much easier to be empathetic toward them. Compassion and understanding within a workplace can make for a calmer work environment. If a leader is able to feel compassion towards his/her employees, they will seem much more approachable and communication within the office will vastly improve. In a tense, non-compassionate office environment, employees are less inclined to be open and share issues with their supervisor, resulting in unhappy employees, unhappy customers, or both.
Good leadership is empowering those around you to be the best that they can be. By doing this, you become a catalyst for change within the workplace. Anyone and everyone is capable of creating a profound impact, especially if they are encouraged to do so. According to Mallory, all you need to empower others is to show up with an open heart and give it all you’ve got. A leader with a positive attitude that encourages their employees to be the best they can be is empowerment in itself.
Spending the last 8 years traveling the world to help those in need, Mallory is an expert on empathy, compassion, and empowerment. By incorporating her lessons into your workplace, you are sure to create a more productive and open environment. Book Mallory today to learn just how you can do that.
