Compassion as a Strategic Advantage at Work

Did you know that individuals who are more compassionate are actually more successful at work? The same goes for teams and companies. But why does the concept still seem so foreign to some of us?

In this ExecuNet Master Class session led by Scott Shute, Head of Mindfulness and Compassion at LinkedIn, we dive into the simple but challenging practice of developing ourselves in order to lift and serve those around us.

Along the way, we explore how finding our own unique spark not only makes us happier and more productive, it’s one of the most powerful things we can do to help others. Here’s what some attendees of the live class had to say:

  • “Very insightful … relevant.”
  • “This is such a valuable topic for all to understand and take action to make the world a better place, starting with each one of us individually. It’s the ripple effect.”
  • “Excellent event! whether you are early in your life or more advanced, we all need to take a step back to examine our lives, values and how they impact others.”
  • “Very powerful speaker. Relatable, compelling stories. Actionable concepts.”
  • “Thank you, Scott, from the bottom of my heart.”

We can change work (and our world) from the inside out. Listen to this session to learn how.
