Publisher's Summary

We are living in an epidemic of disengagement and despair that calls us to action. Awakening Compassion at Work answers the call, showing us new ways to enliven the humanity of work and in so doing address the suffering of the world and create an innovative, optimistic, and engaged workforce.

Scholars and consultants Monica Worline and Jane Dutton approach compassion in organizations through the lens of new research that helps us see what compassion is, how we can create it in our everyday work, and the benefits it offers to both individuals and organizations. They reveal why compassion is integral to recruiting and retaining talented people, essential to delivering high quality service and rapid innovation, and inextricably linked to engagement, collaboration, and adaptability. They even include a tool for assessing your organization's "compassion potential." This book gives us the tools to build skill in creating compassion and invigorating the humanity of our basic institutions.

Living your best (corporate) life.....

We have always considered our company to be something of a Hippie Commune. This book has reassured us that we are not alone and that, in fact, there is so much more that we can aspire to. I would recommend it to anyone setting up a company, running a company, or daring to dream that they can change the company that they are working for. Read it. Believe it. Practice it. Preach it. I gave it 5 stars across the board because 6 wasn’t an option.
