Hi, my name is Colette Ellis. I'm an executive coach, founder of Instep Consulting and author of "Focus On Your Vision." Today, I'm going to share some useful advice on how you can make a difference with the power of compassion. In today's workplace it's important that we develop empathy and compassion with our co-workers. It's especially important when we want to solve problems or inspire a new idea with our team. So here are some steps on how you can make a difference using the power of compassion. Be open to other people's ideas, viewpoints and opinions. Don't assume that you have all the facts or that you know everything there is to know about a situation. Have two way conversations. Don't monopolize discussions. You should be listening at least half if not more of the time than you are speaking. Show respect, don't resort to name calling, blaming or making fun of people just because you don't agree with their own ideas. And finally seek out win/win solutions. Don't just focus on the negative aspect of the situation. Take an interest in the other person's viewpoint and ask questions so you can really find out where it is they're coming from. So those are a few ideas on how you can make a difference with the power of compassion. Let me know in the comments area if this information was helpful for you or feel free to share any ideas that you come up with on your own. This is Coach Colette sharing tips and ideas to help you be happier in the workplace.
