Compassion As A Business Objective
“Compassion is a practice. As a compassionate leader, you invest time and make an active commitment to the people around you, which sets them on a path for success. You inherently support their growth and clear their way of obstacles — whether that means redefining new processes that improve their work-life balance and productivity or simply being approachable so that employees feel comfortable asking for time away from work.
This kind of leadership strengthens and builds trust. Expressing confidence in your employees provides feelings of stability and psychological safety, essential ingredients for a healthy and engaging work environment. That trust and stability are also necessary for developing your teams into leaders themselves. When employees feel psychological safety, they often take more calculated risks; they reach beyond their comfort zone for stretch goals.”
