Compassion is a word we often hear talked about when it comes to religion, but it’s not a word used often enough when it comes to discussing what makes a business successful.
Compassion is not religious business, it’s a human business. HH Dalai Lama
Indeed, compassion helps leaders be successful, it helps employees become successful, and ultimately it contributes to making companies a success.
Multiple studies have shown that shows of compassion, as well as acts of kindness and generosity, create a ripple effect that stems from those who do the act, to those who observe the act, and the ripple continues expanding, impacting numerous others who are all benefited as a result of just one single show of compassion.

For it’s in giving that we receive. St. Francis of Assisi
