6 Exercises To Strengthen Compassionate Leadership

6 Exercises To Strengthen Compassionate Leadership | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it

Want loyal, dedicated, and passionate employees? Be a loyal, dedicated, and passionate boss. Here are some tools to develop well-being in your workplace through better communication.

 

When you use compassionate communication in your conversations, something quite surprising occurs: both your brain and the brain of the person you're talking to begin to align themselves with each other. This special bond is a phenomenon referred to as "neural resonance," and in this enhanced state of mutual attunement, two people can accomplish remarkable things together. Why? Because it eliminates the natural defensiveness that normally exists when people casually converse.

Ending Bullying Requires Empathetic Teachers, Not Just Students - Education - GOOD

Ending Bullying Requires Empathetic Teachers, Not Just Students - Education - GOOD | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it

Teachers who learn to collaborate, resolve conflicts, and respect multiple perspectives become powerful role models for students.

 

The documentary Bully has forced teachers and principals to renew their efforts to find ways to end bullying in schools. Although experts have identified steps schools should take to end bullying, the broader challenge—creating a culture of empathy—remains. According to educator Vinciane Rycroft, co-founder of U.K.-based charity Mind with Heart, if teachers want to address the root of the problem they must become models of empathy, altruism, and compassion.

Thoughtfulness: Engaging Empathy to Build Strong Brains

Thoughtfulness: Engaging Empathy to Build Strong Brains | Empathy, Respect, Tolerance and Compassion | Scoop.it

Helen was playing in the sandbox in the park, when a brawl between a brother and sister broke out near her. Helen looked up from her work to see them arguing over a shovel, knocking each other to the ground. She watched intently for a while then calmly looked around, found two more shovels, and walked over to them. She handed one to the brother and the other to his sister. The fighting stopped, the girl handed Helen the shovel they had been fighting over, and they all went back to playing happily in the sandbox.
