S/he is compassionate and it’s that compassion that would drive her/him through perils. It took me a long time to realize the importance of compassion.
Compassion is our ability to see a problem from the perspective of the other person. When you are compassionate towards your team, you build relationships.
When you are compassionate towards your customers, you design better products. It helps you to better understand the reality of the people around you. I think it is a cornerstone trait that everyone should cultivate.
