About the Session
All great leaders create suffering. The very best anticipate that fact and respond with compassion. Today, broad-based survey research reveals that our relationship with a direct manager is probably the primary influence on the quality of our workplace experience, yet many managers still overlook the centrality of compassion to their role. Join Monica Worline, compassion at work researcher, in a lively discussion of the new science of compassion and its implications for managerial practice, leadership excellence, and the new world of sustainable competitive advantage that is created through engagement, commitment, and innovation capability fueled by compassion.
