Compassion in Leadership, How Compassion Builds Better Companies by Jeff Weiner, CEO of LinkedIn:
"Create the right culture, and you create a competitive advantage."
"The flip side is developing a culture with a compassionate those....create a culture where people take the time to understand the other person's perspective, and not assume nefarious intention; build trust; and align around a shared mission. After nearly 10 years, I still celebrate the fact we can make important decisions in minutes or hours that some companies debate for months. Create the right culture and you create a competitive advantage."YouTube video of the talk
Workplace Resource: Lynda.com
Lynda.com was bought by LinkedIn in 2016 and is available as part of their LinkedIn Learning subscription service. However, if LinkedIn Learning is not in your budget nor available at your worksite and you want access to Lynda.com, go in to your public library. Many systems already have a library subscription that is available to patrons (if you have a card, you have access). If you are not sure if your local library system has it, ask your librarian or your library's designated reference librarian.
On Servant-Leadership Mindset: how are you starting your day?
Which self are you starting the day with? Your task-oriented self or your reflective self?
"When I wake up, I like to put my hands on my knees, sit on the side of the bed and think about what I am going to do today, how do I want to behave, what my values are,' Blanchard said. 'This way, you go into each day with a clear purpose - in this case, being a servant leader. And now, instead of spending the whole day snapping orders and checking boxes, you can be strategic and focus on bringing the best out of your people." source: LinkedIn Learning article 10.29.2018 and related video clip.
