This is the topic for May and we welcome our artist-intellectual extraordinaire Lisa Philip-Harbutt to share her thoughts on this compelling approach to leadership. Soft diplomacy stops conflict escalation more effectively than hard lines. Soft skills like emotional intelligence help bring empathy and creative solutions into the workplace. By ensuring considered communication, appropriate social etiquette and respectful inclusion soft leaders invite people to engage, share, learn and explore workplace challenges not just fix it. We look forward to your soft leadership experiences and challenges in May and to learning how different leaders manage to cultivate their soft side for team successes, enhanced productivity, workplace well-being and improved organisational resilience.
