with Rasmus Hougaard
About this event
Companies strive to create more connected and caring workplaces where people can thrive and do their best work. But every day leaders need to make decisions that impact people’s lives. They have to cancel projects, manage unpopular changes – and sometimes let people know they no longer have a job.
How do leaders do the hard things that come with the responsibility of leadership, while remaining a good person and bringing out the best in other people?
In their new book, Compassionate Leadership the Potential Project’s Rasmus Hougaard and Jacqueline Carter marshal research from thousands of leaders, employees, and companies in nearly a hundred countries. They reveal that being hard and being human are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, the most successful leaders – and those most valued by their employees – have mastered the ‘wise compassion’ that balances concern for their people with the courage and candor to get hard things done.
On 1st February, Rasmus will share how we can approach our own roles with care and compassion even in the face of the pressures and stresses of daily work.
This event is for any leader trying to balance what it takes to be strong and effective with compassionate caring for their people – I hope you can join us!
