Compassion: a Fundamental of Mindful Leadership... and Life

Compassion: a Fundamental of Mindful Leadership... and Life | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it

What is the role of compassion in the workplace? Very simply, it is one of the four fundamentals of leadership excellence, of mindful leadership, and of living mindfully. And it can be a new year's resolution that you can implement starting today!

 

Compassion at Work

 

Compassion can be brought into each work day through simple acts of kindness. When we choose to take a purposeful pause and offer a colleague a compliment, or a word of encouragement, or inquire into their well-being, we bring kindness into the workplace. And the ripple effect of kindness is limitless. A compassionate leader can transform the most challenging workplace. When a leader embodies compassion and is seen as a kind person, even his or her toughest messages are more likely to be received well. After all, when we work with someone who honestly respects, includes, and values us, it goes a long way to making us trust his or her decisions.

This is such a wonderful thing to happen. Perhaps when other loggers or poachers see this, they will see that they can change their ways and turn things and their lives around. i.e. elephant poachers can turn into safari tour guides, and dolphin and whale killers can become tour boats to make money from loving them and teaching others what a wonderful animal they are.

Empathic Design in the Classroom: Can We Teach Empathy?

Empathic Design in the Classroom: Can We Teach Empathy? | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it
Our students are often prompted in ways that guide them to empathize with both hypothetical and real “users.” HS Mathematics Teachers Duane Wacha and Amy Harbaugh’s geometry course took a look at ASIJ, as it is designed now.

 

Their goal was to redesign the entire campus in a way they feel more empathetically represents the student users’ needs. They created 3D models in SketchUp and used paper schematics to draft a new view of the school grounds. In the process Duane and Amy’s geometry students came to appreciate the complexity in considering the needs of all who share our campus. They also came to appreciate the value in creating for others.

 

Empathy was a topic of interest at the start of school In-House Teacher Conference held on August 18 and 19. Eighteen other teachers joined Duane in a collaborative session that explored empathy in the classroom—discussing strategies and skills teachers can use to support students in shifting their point of view and understanding the diverse perspectives of others.

The Healing Power of Empathy

The Healing Power of Empathy | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it
"Alternative practitioners tend to express empathy, to allow for unhurried silences and to ask what meaning patients make of their pain," Johnson writes, and their clients feel better for it.


"Suffering people reflexively seek care, but in mainstream medicine, care tends to mean treatment and nothing more. Many patients who really need empathy and advice are instead given drugs and surgery."
