The Art of The Break

If you are working long hours with few breaks in the day and rare unplugged interactions with your co-workers, there are better and more productive ways of working. Being connected 24/7 and sitting for long hours with no breaks, is not good for our health, our work quality, or the things we truly care about. The good news is that many people are leading the way to healthier, more productive work environments. We are learning from entrepreneurs, business leaders, administrative professionals, mindfulness and productivity experts who are leading the way to better work day practices – one step at a time, together. The Art of the Break is a bi-weekly podcast with insight and strategy delivered to you every other Monday.

Improving health and business through The Art of The Break. Conversations with inspiring people who are creating paths to better ways of working.

Mar 6, 2017

Join me with Monica Worline for an informative and compelling conversation on the importance of compassion in the workplace.  She talks about how fear can get in our way and gives us simple tools to demonstrate compassion in ways that are most meaningful. 

Did you know that practicing compassion at work is a successful business strategy? Compassionate workplaces have higher levels of service quality, increased retention of talented employees, better innovation, and collaboration.

Monica C. Worline, Ph.D., is founder and CEO of EnlivenWork, an organization that teaches businesses how to tap into courageous thinking, compassionate leadership, and curiosity to bring their best work to life. She is a research scientist at Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education; Executive Director of CompassionLab, the world’s leading research collaboratory focused on compassion in the workplace; and co-author of Awakening Compassion at Work: The Quiet Power that Elevates People and Organizations.

Monica holds a lectureship at the Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, and is affiliate faculty at the Center for Positive Organizations. She is an award-winning teacher who has also served on the faculties of the Goizueta Business School at Emory University; the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California, Irvine; and the School of Social Ecology at the University of California, Irvine.
