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.

Freddie Gray

Freddie Gray | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it

Freddie Gray (1989-2015) was a Black American man killed by police in Baltimore, Maryland. In West Baltimore, in fact, the very Black neighbourhood shown in “The Wire” (2002-2008). While the police investigate themselves, six police officers are on paid leave:
 

Lt. Brian Rice,Sgt. Alicia White,Officer William Porter,Officer Garrett Miller,Officer Edward Nero andOfficer Caesar Goodson Jr


On the morning of April 12th 2015, the police looked at Gray and he ran. A friend says Gray has a history of being beat up by police. The police went after him, on bicycles and on foot. They arrested him for running from police. Not a crime.

Audit Details Racial Discrepancy in OKC Schools Suspensions | Latina Lista

Audit Details Racial Discrepancy in OKC Schools Suspensions | Latina Lista | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it

By Nate Robson
Oklahoma Watch


With two months still left in the school year, administrators at Taft Middle School in Oklahoma City have already suspended more than half of their black students.


At Capitol Hill High School, the average length of a suspension is nearly 12 days, or more than two weeks of missed class time. Capitol Hill officials also told several parents that re-enrolling their children was a “waste of time” because of the re-enrollment date.


Northwest Classen High School and Douglas Mid-High School each referred 20 percent of their students to alternative education programs meant for students at risk of failing or getting kicked out of school.


These and other findings are part of an internal audit, obtained by Oklahoma Watch Monday, that was conducted by Oklahoma City Public Schools. The audit was partly in response to a U.S. Department of Education civil rights investigation focusing on complaints of race-based bias in how students are disciplined.


School officials also said Oklahoma City Superintendent Rob Neu, who is in his first year on the job, requested the audit after arriving in Oklahoma because of the improvements it led to in his old school in Washington state.


The audit, which Oklahoma Watch obtained through an Open Records Act request, corroborates what a release of federal data revealed last year: According to the three-year-old data, Oklahoma City’s black students are two to three times more likely to be suspended than their white classmates in middle or high school.

Stop the slaughter of kangaroos in ACT!

Stop the slaughter of kangaroos in ACT! | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it
UPDATE April 2015 -- More killing approved »

Despite community concern, the ACT government has gained a further two-year licence to kill kangaroos on Canberra reserves, with plans to shoot up to 2,400 in 2015.

Every year the ACT government pushes ahead with its kangaroo 'management' cull program — approving plans to slaughter hundreds of kangaroos on reserves in and around Canberra. And every year, evidence has emerged of kangaroos facing prolonged and agonising deaths.

Tragically, it's not just adult kangaroos who are affected. When shooters kill a mother who is carrying a joey, government standards recommend that the joey be killed by decapitation or a blow to the head. Worse still, although government standards require that 'at foot' young kangaroos be similarly dispatched, these 'toddlers' are often simply abandoned to die from starvation, predation or on the roads. Most of them are still too young to have learned the basic skills to protect themselves from these dangers without their mums.

Despite the lack of definitive scientific evidence that the presence of kangaroos has a negative impact on other native flora and fauna, proponents of the plan claim that the kill is necessary to keep kangaroo populations at 'sustainable' levels. But even a Government commissioned review concedes that:

Field evidence to validate the target density [of kangaroos] is currently unavailable
The [Kangaroo Management Plan] is based on the presumption that kangaroos have a direct effect on the amount of vegetation
Kangaroos do change plant diversity but the details are unclear

Even if population control is deemed necessary after further and more conclusive reviews, no kangaroo need be injured or killed. Prior to the 2014 cull, it was recommended that Gungaderra Nature Reserve be excluded from the kill zones for a non-lethal 'fertility control trial'. In this trial, tendered by the animal rescue group Alphadog, up to 500 female kangaroos would have been treated with a fertility control drug to test a non-lethal, long-term alternative.

With serious questions about the evidence underpinning the Government’s justification for the kill, and with the potential for non-lethal management to be trialled, no kangaroo should suffer at the hands of shooters in the ACT.

The ACT government needs to hear from you that Australians don't want kangaroos needlessly slaughtered. Take action today!

Contact the Chief Minister of the ACT, the Greens and Labor ACT Ministers, and the Director of ACT Parks and Conservation, and urge them to consider a non-lethal kangaroo 'management plan', if population control is proven to be necessary at all.

On 12 April, Gray was pinned to the pavement by officers before being loaded into a police van. When he was taken out of it his spine was ‘80 per cent severed’, according to the family’s lawyer. He spent a week in a coma and died on 19 April.

Two South Carolina Police Officers Sentenced For Depriving Mentally Disabled Woman of Her Rights

Two South Carolina Police Officers Sentenced For Depriving Mentally Disabled Woman of Her Rights | Introduce new course in schools called COMPASSION | Scoop.it

Posted by Xena


Yesterday, federal Judge Bryan Harwell said that the bad actions of two officers ruined the good work of thousands of honest officers.


“This one incident can cause the public to lose respect and overshadow the good work, the hard work, done by thousands of officers every day,” Harwell said.


In October last year, Franklin Brown and Eric Walters pleaded guilty to deprivation of rights under color of law.  The DOJ took the case from the state and the officers reached the plea deals through federal prosecutors.


It happened in April 2013 in Marion, South Carolina. Eric Walters was patrolling when he saw Melissa Davis walking out of the yard of a home for sale. He asked her what she was doing, thinking she might have broken into the home. He tased Melissa because she did not quickly respond. While on the ground, Walters ordered Melissa to put her hands behind her back, but he shocked her 4 more times with his taser before she could respond.

Last chance for Animals is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating animal exploitation through education, investigations, legislation, and media attention. The organization believes that animals are highly sentient creatures who exist for their own reasons independent of their service to humans; they should thus not be made to suffer for the latter. LCA therefore opposes the use of animals in food and clothing production, scientific experimentation, and entertainment. Instead it promotes a cruelty-free lifestyle and the ascription of rights to non-human beings.
