Leading with Compassion

Promoting compassion and reducing stress positively affects business wellness. When we lead with compassion we lead with both our heart and brain.

We’re beginning to see a shift to a more empathetic, emotionally intelligent and thoughtful form of leadership. When we practice compassion the focus is on others, we are socially aware and we turn our focus from “I” to “We”.

We’re learning about new research indicating the benefits of encouraging a culture of compassion to reduce workplace stress.  The results are not just a more satisfied and content place of work but a stronger bottom line. It goes without saying when staff members arrive happy at work the result is positive for all involved.
