Supportive inclusive leaders are paramount for an organization's success. 

And, often, the best leaders across industries lead their people with HEART: humility, empathy, adaptability, resiliency, and transparency. They balance organizational goals with the needs of their teams, delivering consistent results along the way.

DXC Technology Senior Vice President & Chief Information Officer, Kristie Grinnell, reinforces this message as she shares her leadership playbook on the Tech Whisperers Podcast.

"I love to drive change and transformation," says Christie on the podcast.

She the need for empathy at work. "I try and come at everything I do, whether it's talking to my kids, talking to my team or talking to my friends...we're all human. We're all doing the best we can with everything we have going down around us. And, if we can all step back and get out of our own heads a little bit, and have our heart play a little bit of that role - that you don't know what kind of day somebody had, you don't know what's going on behind them and their office doors, or going on in the life around them every day - and we do bring that all to work. Whether we try to or not, it does come to work with us. And so whenever I get into a team meeting, and especially leading a large transformation like this, I do try to lead with humility," explains Christie.
