CCT and Leadership

CCT is a growing initiative in modern management. Among others, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner sees compassion as a necessary tool in successful management (see link to the right). In his commencement address this year at The Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, his alma mater, Weiner asserted that “managing compassionately is not just a better way to build a team, it’s a better way to build a company.”


The September 26 workshop is led by Dr. Leah Weiss, who developed the CCT program together with the Dalai Lama. Dr. Weiss’ course at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, “Leading with Mindfulness and Compassion,” is breaking new ground in an MBA program already famous for innovation. Dr. Weiss​ teaches how to leverage research-based mindfulness and compassion insights to create outstanding leaders and thriving work environments.

CCT has proven particularly beneficial as well for health professionals, psychologists and others working with people in a care role. In addition to being of benefit to those they work with, it is also beneficial for the professional/carer themselves. In such professions where vulnerable, conflicting and sad situations can occur, the professional/care-giver can be at risk of shutting down, or of “taking it all in” – sometimes resulting in stress or other illness. The CCT training can help health care professionals accommodate difficult feelings without compromising their own health. Research also shows that CCT reduces stress, improves empathy and makes you resilient in the difficult situations of life – making if valuable in many professions.
