Compassionate Communication Skills
Compassionate communication should be part of every leaders' daily interaction with their followers and colleagues. More than almost anything else, a dose of compassion can completely change the atmosphere of the workplace for the better. This video looks at three key ways every professional can communicate with more compassion.
Compassionate Leadership Principles
When we think of traditional leadership, we don't normally think about compassion. But, we should. One of the best ways to turn your workplace into an amazing place is lead your people with more compassion. This video looks at concrete ways you can start.
What is Compassion?
We could all do with a little more compassion in the world. But, what exactly is it? This video defines, explains, and gives examples of when I often feel compassion in my life. Maybe you'll related to these examples and see compassion in your own life more clearly.
How Can We Be More Likable?
Some people seem to have it easy. They socialize with total comfort. They seem naturally likable. Some of us, however, have the opposite effect. The harder we try, the less likable we seem. We push people away without knowing why. And, unfortunately, the Internet is filled with so called "tricks" and "weird hacks" to get people to liking you. Well, you may have noticed. I don't ever suggest phony tactics like this. Instead, I believe the best way to make friends is to be a friend, as the old expression says. So, take a look at the full video to learn a straightforward approach to help you avoid the common mistakes we make that push people away and then looks at tried-and-true-principles that will make you more likable and easier to be around.
Informative vs. Persuasive Speaking?
Any time you speak in public, you have to make lots of choices. One of the biggest decisions is your goal for the speech. Are you speaking to inform or persuade your listeners? Informative speaking and persuasive speaking each have their own nuances but both type of speaking are important. In fact, as a professional and as a leader, you will use one or the other (or both) almost daily. The video explains all the details.
