Self-compassion is a key to emotional and relational well-being, especially while we are in the change process.
In our last podcast, we talked about the importance of disrupting our autopilot when it comes to change. In that episode, we mentioned the crucial importance of self-compassion as part of that process. We’re both really committed to self-compassion as an indispensable part of leadership and change. We don’t see it as an add-on or a luxury or a good idea; we believe that it’s central to how we engage as leaders—with ourselves and with others. In this episode, we talk about why we think this is so important to leadership and how we can practice it in life-changing ways.
