Presented by Jeff Jacobs, Director, Organizational Effectiveness at Adobe
The word “compassionate” has come up a great deal as something we strive to be as individuals and as an important descriptor for organizations. In an independent research study, 10,000 employees identified “compassionate” as one of the top four qualities they look for in a leader. A separate study of CEOs found 92% identifying compassion as “important” or “extremely important” to their success, but the majority said they weren’t sure how to be more compassionate. Jeff Jacobs developed and shared a fast-paced and interactive workshop with over 1,000 participants to raise awareness of compassion as a true “Superpower” – what it looks like in practice, how we manage our triggers and mental models, our reaction to conflict, and the positive impact of mindfulness. He will provide an overview of his workshop and some of the lessons learned. Bring your questions about receptivity and application in the Corporate environment.
