Compassionate Workplaces

The compassionate workplace is a highly innovative and transformative approach to work and life which in turn helps us to resolve workplace challenges and increase productivity.

  • It aims at transforming our workplaces into happy, harmonious spaces that value dignity, wellbeing, psychological safety, establishing connections, nurturance and support.
  • In workplaces, compassion may be expressed in the form of kindness, civility, understanding and support
  • Adopted by major international businesses
  • Leading business schools like Stanford Business School have included it in their curriculum for the training of business leaders.

How Compassion in Workplaces Helps

Numerous Outcome Studies have consistently shown –

  • Vast improvements in business when compassion becomes a pervasive value in the culture of workplaces.
  • Results in the experience of a sense of belonging, loyalty, commitment, efficiency and productivity.
  • When people feel valued, trusted, supported, appreciated, brings out the best in people. And they give their best.
  • Reduced stress levels, absenteeism, reduced legal costs and greater employee retention.
  • Responding compassionately to employees not only improves their performance and loyalty, but also creates an atmosphere that is safe for learning, collaboration, and innovation – which all impact the bottom line.
Transforming Workplaces by Cultivating Compassion

In order to move from concept to practice, a necessary transformation of workplaces is sought to be achieved through modules such as the following offered in workshop format supplemented by optional Awareness Coaching sessions:

This module aims at helping teams and leaders to connect with purpose, values, and meaning in the workplace, putting compassion at the heart of everything that is done. Operationalising compassion in the workplace involves making systemic changes to ensure that compassion is a core value that pervades the culture and atmosphere of the workplace. It will therefore include systems for participation/involvement, feedback and evaluation.

Leaders who use their leadership skills with compassion show it in their awareness of others and their needs, moving from me to we, and an attitude of wishing the best for others, and the courage to take actions that follow from it.

We will focus on creating a culture and environment, where compassion is the key value of the organization and ensure changes at the systemic level that makes it flourish. A key purpose is finding ways to be sensitive to the needs of their community which includes the teams, mangers, and employees.

Being embodied beings, we experience life and express ourselves in and through our bodies. Using our bodies to bring about changes in ourselves is more reliable and lasting. Changes are real if they are experienced and observed in our bodies.

Since our body is our presence, being a leader or executive shows in the body. We will use the tools of self-awareness to take the next step in bringing about effective changes through embodied presence and communication. We will work on our patterns of embodiment and use ways of bringing about changes that are quick and lasting.

Workplace relationships can make or mar businesses offering potential for great satisfaction and fulfilment as well as possibilities of high stress and burnout. This module will offer a basic understanding of the significance of workplace relationships and the need for instilling and maintaining a style of relationship that is friendly, accepting, and nurturing that is conducive to productivity.

This will include the awareness of workplace dynamics, workplace games and dramas, conflicts at work, and our styles of relationships. An understanding, accepting attitude promotes cohesion, harmony, reduced stress levels, greater efficiency and productivity. Most productive organizations have cooperative, supportive, cohesive, participative environments demonstrating beyond doubt that happy people produce best results.
