About this episode
How do leaders respond in a crisis to ensure decisions are made with strategy and empathy rather than in fear?
This session hosted by Daniel Murray from Empathic Consulting is a discussion of his recent white paper ‘5 key strategies leaders must not ignore when faced with challenging times’. How we prepare and act now is crucial to our success and ongoing sustainability. It is amid a crisis that leadership comes under the microscope.
Daniel explores – with a mix of empathy, strategy and pragmatism – how leaders must build trust and understanding to create strong relationships that will carry us through crisis and beyond.

Daniel Murray is Australia's leading expert on Strategic Empathy. Blending the worlds of business strategy, leadership and emotional intelligence to support business and community leaders to drive high performance by creating more motivated and empowered teams.
Daniel shows business leaders how to foster organisational understanding, build deep trusted relationships and create a culture of commitment through mastery of empathy as a capability. As a reformed Management Consultant, he has worked with some of Australia and New Zealand’s largest companies such as the Commonwealth Bank, IAG, ASB, QBE and Perpetual to solve some of their most daunting challenges. For the last 18 years he has used his degree in Mathematics, MBA and understanding of complex systems to drive strategic change in the corporate and not-for-profit worlds.
Combining this strategic thinking with his extensive research, study and a deep passion for neuroscience, psychology and behavioural economics allows Daniel to bring a unique focus on the rational, emotional and contextual drivers that leaders need to master to deliver high performance through their teams, organisations and communities. Daniel's keynote speaking, training, consulting and writing all demonstrate he believes it will be people, not technology, that will disrupt business today.
