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.

The trash vortex

The trash vortex | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it
The trash vortex is an area the size of Texas in the North Pacific in which an estimated six kilos of plastic for every kilo of natural plankton, along with other slow degrading garbage, swirls slowly around like a clock, choked with dead fish, marine mammals, and birds who get snared. Some plastics in the gyre will not break down in the lifetimes of the grandchildren of the people who threw them away.

Keep Lynx Safe From Deadly Traps

Keep Lynx Safe From Deadly Traps | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it
One of the cardinal rules for hunters is never to shoot unless you know your target. And likewise, trappers should catch only the species they're targeting. When mistakes are made, the results can be devastating, as Maine learned this past winter when two threatened lynx were killed in traps set for fishers and martens.

Empathy

Empathy | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it

I’ve been thinking some about empathy recently. I read an article written a few years ago by Paul Bloom arguing that empathy is an inadequate guide for morality.  I also ran across an Atlantic article by Coner Friedersdorf about barriers to empathy in an age of social media.


Finally, in reading the Passion account during Holy week, I was reminded of Jesus’ empathic response upon entering Jerusalem. This post will focus on the first of these sources, Paul Bloom’s account of the limitations of empathy...


So, my plan at this point is not to deliberate more about why volunteering would be a good thing. Instead, I’ll regularly bring to mind images of the homeless or hungry and think about what it must be like to be them. Will that produce sufficient empathy to get me to do something for them? We’ll see. I just know that thinking about what I could do hasn’t gotten me anywhere
