Par Christopher L Kukk. 2017
Recent science shows that to achieve durable success, we need to be more than just achievers; we need to be…compassionate achievers. New research in biology, neuroscience, and economics have found that compassion--recognizing a problem or caring about another's pain and making a commitment to help--not only improves others' lives; it can transform our own. Reveals the profound benefits of practicing compassion including more constructive relationships, improved intelligence, and increased resiliency. To help us achieve these benefits, Kukk, the founding Director of the Center for Compassion, Creativity and Innovation, shares his unique 4-step program for cultivating compassion. Kukk makes clear that practicing compassion isn't about being a martyr or a paragon of virtue; it's about rejecting rage and indifference and choosing instead to be a thoughtful, caring problem-solver. He identifies the skills every compassionate achiever should master--listening, understanding, connecting, and acting--and outlines how to develop each. 2017.
