Compassion at Work
The first four industrial revolutions were scientific discoveries that changed the way work happens and consequently changed the world. Unlike the first four, the fifth revolution is a rediscovery of the power of human consciousness at work and outside. We are at the doors of that revolution. This book offers compassion as a key to manifesting the fifth revolution.
'The Fifth Revolution' is an invitation to reinvent your presence at work and how your workplace can support you in being the best version of yourself. The secret sauce presented in this book is compassion. Compassion is simply being able to do the right thing in the face of suffering, and workplaces are not distant from suffering. Compassion is a behavior that is always desired but often missing in workplaces, including leadership. This book delivers the skills of workplace compassion in a practical, hands-on way that has not been done before.
At the end of this book, you will have learnt nine critical compassion skills that will transform your inner world and the way you interface with the people around you as influencer and leader.
In an age of Artificial Intelligence, as our jobs and work identities are being redefined, compassion can be the unique skill that defines our uniqueness and work success. The book is all about practical compassion- part information, part stories, part work-book and all transformation.
