Program Description

The modern workplace is challenging—a place where we can realize our potential as a human being. But it's also a demanding place for which we need to build our (inner) strengths. Burgeoning research shows that self-compassion (think: inner compassion) is strongly associated with emotional well-being, coping with life's challenges, lower levels of stress and anxiety, healthy habits such as diet and exercise, and more satisfying, compassionate relationships. Self-compassion is a source of self-worth that's relatively free of social approval, enabling us to bounce back from difficulty and pursue our goals with energy and enthusiasm. And it's becoming increasingly evident that compassion is good for workplace productivity and satisfaction.

This workshop, [email protected], is an adaptation by Wibo Koole of the empirically-supported 8-week Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) training, developed by clinical psychologist and Harvard lecturer Chris Germer, PhD, and Kristin Neff, PhD, and taught to tens of thousands of people around the world. Compassion benefits everyone—and the easiest way to increase compassion for others is by cultivating self-compassion.

Wibo Koole is a world leader in mindful leadership, working to specifically address the needs of people in the business community—staff, managers, and CEOs—who wish to make the workplace, and their experience of the workplace, more enjoyable and productive.

[email protected] is designed to give each participant a direct experience of self-compassion and, by learning the core principles and practices of inner compassion, the ability to evoke this powerful resource at work.

Program activities include discussion topics, exercises, meditations, and small group interaction. It is not necessary for participants to have a formal meditation practice to benefit from self-compassion. [email protected] is an opportunity to explore how we typically respond when difficulties arise in our lives and to learn tools for becoming a strong and supportive companion to ourselves, much as we might do for others.
