Leading with Compassion Training and Certificate Program

Our Leading with Compassion Training and Certificate Program brings two importantly linked sets of concepts and behavior together, namely leadership and compassion. The leadership and compassion literature have already begun to come together in various meaningful ways (see below) but we may also have to reconsider the heroic, individual model of leadership, appreciating that compassionate leadership is a collective effort mediated by individuals.

Research Based

Employees personal lives and organizational lives conspire to create inevitable challenges and suffering. Often the concept of compassion is considered an emotional state. We agree with that, but also consider compassion to be a beautiful horizon. Our own research substantiates and moves the compassionate leadership role to the forefront.

Anyone who desires a broader dynamic interpersonal opportunity to take action in the face of emerging difficulties. Hence, we offer a strong emphasis on action through recognition of life’s challenges and engaged empathic response as the focus of this course.
