Compassion – The New Business Model
In a new book, Out of Character: Surprising Truths About the Liar, Cheat, Sinner (and Saint) Lurking in All of Us, social psychologist David DeSteno details a number of studies that show people will act generously when they are proximate to someone who is acting with compassion. If they feel some attempt to find common ground – even with someone who otherwise cheats – they will act with compassion toward them.
