In this session we will look at what it is to lead with compassion (both for self and others), the real and evidence-based benefits for the organisation and why leading with kindness is one of the most courageous decisions an individual can make.  

We will consider: What makes a kind and compassionate leader? What is the evidence base for a new approach to leadership thinking? How is kindness demonstrated in our own leadership practice? What gets in the way of compassion and kindness in leadership practice? How can we develop our own practice as a kind leader?
