💙Compassionate Change LeadershipFeb 09, 2023
What does it mean to be a compassionate change leader?
Let’s start by considering what it means to show compassion at work. Compassion in the workplace is rooted in caring about people beyond the value they bring to the organization. It means getting to know your team and supporting their development so they can reach their full potential.
In the context of organizational change, compassion is essential because it reminds us to create space for people to provide feedback, and to act when possible to help alleviate their issues and concerns.
Compassion is key to building trust and acceptance of the need for change among team members, which is the first step towards adopting and sustaining the new ways of working and behaving. When impacted by a change, compassion allows us to see the common goals, and to work together to reach them for the good of the team and the organization.
The bottom line: leadership is about more than just making decisions – it's about inspiring others to work together to create positive change. When we infuse our leadership approach with compassion, we recognize the humanity of our team and can create an environment that supports growth, resilience, and success for all.
