Leah Weiss is a researcher, lecturer, consultant, and author who teaches compassionate leadership at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she created the perennially waitlisted course, Leading With Mindfulness and Compassion. Leah is a principal teacher, and a founding faculty member of Stanford’s Compassion Cultivation Programme conceived by the Dali Llama. Her first book “How We Work: Live Your Purpose, Reclaim your Sanity and Embrace the Daily Grind” focuses on developing compassionate and soft skill-based leadership, while also offering research backed actionable steps towards finding purpose at work.
In today’s episode, Leah talks to us about why business leaders are lining up to learning how to be more compassionate in workplaces and how this is helping them to harness the wisdom of their emotions, to fail better in order to learn and to find more purpose in their work.
