Good words that I "empathize" with entirely. Absolute power corrupts absolutely... but smaller amounts of power can make people into unfeeling dictators. It has been said to gauge a man, give him a bit of power and see how he handles it. So many fail...

I feel you can also see this in how someone treats service people. If I see someone treat service people like dirt, it's a huge red flag for me. Thanks for reading!

Hi Art,

I'm wondering if you have any personal experiences with those who lack empathy in business, an anecdote, if you will, with names withheld to protect the innocent. I think it would be great if you could share them with the whole community over at BizSugar.

Hi Heather,

That's an interesting idea. I feel we all have those stories. Will consider pitching that to the rest of our content team soon. :)
