The late Fred Rogers, of Mr. Roger's neighborhood, has seen a resurgence of popularity, including the release of two major films on his life in the past 3 years (Won't You Be My Neighbor (2018); A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019)) . Something about his message of empathy and kindness seems to resonate with us now more than ever. We asked ourselves, What might Mr. Rogers say about leadership in today's world?
In this episode we have the pleasure of hearing from Dr. Dana Winters, executive director of the Fred Rogers Center, and an expert in her own right on human connection. Dana draws from Fred's teachings to share insights on relevant topics for today's leaders, including:
- How to build an inclusive work environment through the art of listening first
- How to give correction to an employee in a way that brings growth without shame.
