Overview

Emotional intelligence, empathy, good communication and interpersonal skills are just a few of the vital components of a productive and healthy organizational culture. Though sometimes dismissed simply as “soft skills,” these and other related skills are, in fact, critical, as they help form the basis of teamwork, collaboration, and a smooth-running, efficient workplace. They are also essential for cultivating a culture of compassion, which can help foster a stronger, more effective work environment.

What You Will Learn

This web event will explore the development of these skills in the context of leadership, with Stanford University lecturer and founding teacher of the Compassion Institute, Dr. Leah Weiss. Incorporating research from psychologists, neuroscientists, and Dr. Weiss’s top-selling book How We Work: Live Your Purpose, Reclaim Your Sanity, and Embrace the Daily Grind, this unique and powerful discussion will help you:
  • Gain an understanding of why and how compassion is important in leadership
  • Discover the science and research behind soft skill development
  • Learn the first steps to take when the need for compassion cultivation is recognized

About the Presenters

Leah Weiss, Ph.D., is a researcher, lecturer, consultant, and author. She teaches Compassionate Leadership at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she created the perennially-waitlisted course "Leading with Mindfulness and Compassion." She is a principal teacher and a founding faculty member of Stanford's “Compassion Cultivation Program,” conceived by the Dalai Lama. Her first book, How We Work: Live Your Purpose, Reclaim Your Sanity, and Embrace the Daily Grind (HarperWave), focuses on developing compassionate and soft skill-based leadership while also offering research-backed actionable steps towards finding purpose at work.
