How do you keep teams happy, motivated and performing well – especially in tough times? Compassionate leadership is a key for unlocking high-performing teams even when facing most difficult environments. It requires that we first understand ourselves, then others’ needs, and finally act with positive intent to secure the best for all. This episode explores how we can practice compassionate leadership.
Manley Hopkinson is an expert on this topic. Schooled in leadership from experiences as diverse as being an officer in the Royal Navy and Royal Hong Kong Police, to being a skipper in the BT Global Challenge round the world yacht race and winning the first skiing race to the Magnetic North Pole, Manley brings the lessons he’s learned on ice and at sea to the leaders at clients including Google, Amazon, Citibank, KPMG and McKinsey. His latest book is titled Compassionate Leadership: How to create and maintain engaged, committed and high-performing teams.
