Leading from compassion.

#MondayMotivationSW Recent studies according to Forbes founds that compassionate leadership results lead to positive growth within an organization. Here are some of the findings

"- Companies with purpose & corporate social responsibility outperform S&P 500 peers by 8X

- 88% of millennials look for employers with corporate social responsibility values

- Compassion positively impacts productivity, employee and customer retention, profitability, and financial performance

- Compassion supports strategic advantage in innovation, service quality, collaboration, retaining talented people, employee and customer engagement, and adaptability to change"

Forbes goes on to relay that the five C's of Compassion are:

1. Compassionate

2. Courageous

3. Collaborative

4. Contemplative

5. Civil

In an industry like dance that can often support the individual ego or the solo career journey, are we losing out by not recognizing the power of compassion within leadership and even in relating to each other as dancers?
