Show Notes:

  • What Neeta means by “empathy-based solutions”
  • Neeta’s journey around the world to understand that leadership means leading from true human connection
  • Need for authenticity and vulnerability in order to build trust
  • We are actually taught to have a mask in business and many professions
  • Natural tendency for humans to go towards defense and use the Ego as protection
  • Would you rather be hurt or be hard?
  • What if we started with self-awareness?
  • “What you resist persists”
  • Once you accept where you are, you can begin making decisions towards where you want to be and who you want to be
  • Feeling as though we must please everyone around us to the detriment of ourselves
  • Emotional GRIT is really a process of tapping into your emotional resilience in 4 stages described by Neeta (Growing, Revealing, Innovating, Transforming)
