Believe the Possibility
- "Leading with compassion entails using a leader's interpersonal skills to alleviate suffering in work interactions with followers.
- Leading with compassion becomes a powerful form of modeling compassion.
- Leaders can build skill in allowing suffering to surface, engaging in sensitive inquiry work, remaining mindful, attuning to others, and listening with empathy.
- Seeing compassion modeled in everyday work interactions opens up the possibility that an organization's members can take compassion from work to home, improving their family and community relationships (p. 264-265)."
