Compassion and work may seem incompatible bedfellows in all but a few health or care related professions where compassion is firmly on the agenda. Research increasingly suggests that compassion is a key workplace differentiator, one well worth cultivating. We examine what compassion is and how to develop it at work with our 8 stage checklist.
Who Is Caring With Compassion Training For?
Caring with compassion for healthcare professionals was developed in partnership with the NHS to build compassion within a rapidly changing healthcare landscape, this is a practical one day course for professionals working in pressured roles that demand high levels of compassion. You’ll have the opportunity to reflect, discuss and build upon your existing skills. Throughout the day you will be introduced to compassion theory, the neuroscience behind compassion and the latest in emotional intelligence research.
The day will provide a safe space for you to audit your own level of individual, team and organisational compassion, reflecting upon barriers to caring with compassion for healthcare professionals as well as team and individual development. We will examine the role of emotional intelligence in compassion alongside personality differences and communication. You will have the opportunity to practice skills to help you recognise compassionate practice, support others and communicate more effectively.
