The “C” Word: Building up the courage to lead with compassion

What We Know, What We’re Learning

The word compassion is met with so much push back in corporate spaces we’ve dubbed it The “C” Word. Why does compassion have so many leaders running scared? The biggest obstacle to embracing compassion as a core element of leadership is fear. Fear that empathy will be mistaken for weakness. Fear that kindness will hinder successful outcomes. Fear that vulnerability will become a vulnerability. (All justifiable because it happens!) So, how do we be strong, effective and respected leaders when we know today’s challenges require the fresh approach of compassionate leadership? In this talk, Compassion and Confidence expert Magalie René will debunk the “C” Word and connect the dots between empathy, empowerment, and boundaries for those who are ready to effectively lead with compassion. After all, the future of work is compassionate.
