Understanding Compassion Fatigue: Balancing Empathy with Self-Care with Teresa Vozza

January 22, 2024

Caring about others is a good thing – until it isn’t. But did you know that over-caring, and using too many of our personal resources worrying about others, can have a detrimental effect on our physical and mental health, and our own performance?

On the podcast this week I’m talking to Executive Coach and Leadership Trainer Teresa Vozza about the fine line between empathy and compassion fatigue. As a fellow sensitive introvert Teresa is familiar with this herself, and she shares her own story (and how it led her to become a HeartMath trainer.

We chat about:

  • The line between caring and caring too much (and how to spot it)
  • The integration of modern leadership principles with neuroscience and spirituality
  • The common traits Teresa sees in her high achieving clients
  • The HeartMath system, and how it helps users to become regulated and resilient
