Compassion in Action, Inward & Outward
April 22, 2020 at 8 pm ET
Participate in this FREE 60-minute Sip-N-Learn to learn how about the intricate workings of compassion and the exponentially positive impact of its practice in your life.
What propels people to help others in times of difficulties? How can we tap into this power and harness it to develop as leaders?
“Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive“
– Dalai Lama XIV, The Art of Happiness
This power is the power of compassion. It is the force that empowers people to alleviate others’ suffering. Compassion is borne out of an authentic desire to help other people. It is a trait that is innately built into us. That means that most of us have the capacity for it. Yet, like any muscle in our body, it does take targeted, intentional practice for us to strengthen our compassion to the point where responding with compassion becomes an automatic, regular behavior.
The neuroscience of compassion is intricately tied to the neuroscience of resilience. In other words, the act of helping is related to the act of bouncing back from our own adversities.
Can a lack of compassion be what is holding us back from our success and evolution as a society?
Who deserves compassion first? And what is the link between compassion and mindset?
Research says that the intentional practice of self-compassion for even 4 weeks significantly improves psychological wellbeing.
Self-compassion has been shown to be an effective buffer against anxiety and negative thoughts that arise when our ego and sense of self are threatened in any way. Being compassionate has also been shown to be the foundation of overcoming fear of failure, perfection paralysis and decision paralysis when faced with too many options or opportunities.
What are conditional acceptance and unconditional acceptance?
Unlocking the secret to how you accept – yourself or others – is the way to maximize the positive impacts of compassion in your life.
Practicing compassion as a leader has been tied to increasing team cohesion, team performance, healthy group dynamics and inclusive organizational cultures.
