The Coaching with CARE model will equip leaders, managers and teams with a new perspective, enabling them to successfully lead through change and uncertainty. Here we introduce element 1: Compassion.

In this time of reflection, stop and consider can you really afford for your leadership not to be able to deliver all of the following benefits? Increased loyalty: Improved cooperation: Talent retention: Improved performance: Stress reduction: More effective teams: Strengthened relationships: Greater innovation.

The Coaching with CARE model will improve self-awareness and social-awareness will deliver benefits that excellent leaders cannot afford to ignore.

 

Compassion

From the Latin “co-suffering”. In coaching, we would speak of empathy, the capacity to feel what others are feeling. During this crisis we are all very much in this together, everyone is affected in some way, and everyone can make a difference by our actions and approach.

Previously we elevated words like competitive which already creates a perception of us and them, in marketing terms differentiation is key, again suggesting a focus on our differences. Whilst these concepts will continue and are not to be seen as negative, it is in the celebration of our differences that we can achieve a better world, a better team, and be a better business.

Leadership which starts from a place of compassion and empathy will embrace active listening, with a genuine interest in what others have to say, think or feel. Inviting feedback and providing regular check-in and check-out opportunities when working remotely. Where compassion is practiced it will lead to increased loyalty and retention of employees and talent. Compassion demonstrates a genuine interest in the well-being of others (our employees, our colleagues, our team) and can lead to a reduction in stress, allowing individuals to respond and act from a better place, enabling improved cooperation and performance. 

In the next article, we will introduce element 2: Authenticity
