Exceed critical targets by leading with love

91% of leaders say compassion is very important for leadership.

80% of leaders want to enhance their compassion but don’t know how.

- HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW, FEBRUARY 2018

Facing growing demands, many executives struggle to achieve critical outcomes while demonstrating compassion for themselves and others.

Compassionate Leaders Circle developed powerful change models that help leaders:

  • experience epiphanies in leadership and productivity
  • unleash employee potential to improve performance
  • and foster employee engagement with a culture of caring and civility.

Leading with love will help you meet and exceed your ambitious goals.

"A breath of fresh air"

"The leadership retreat Compassionate Leaders Circle led for our senior team was a breath of fresh air.

The content moved beyond conventional leadership topics such as Listening and Giving Feedback to the importance of moving from sympathy to empathy and compassion.

The Donnellan Method is less "presentation" and more "conversation."

- Gar Grannell, CEO, Mohawk Global Logistics

"Compassion in the workplace creates positive, productive, enriching experiences. I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop to anyone in business, leadership or management."

- Andrea Shaw
Assistant Dean, Marketing & Communication
Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University

“[CLC]'s ‘Be a Remarkable Leader’ program was a good fit for the Cornell College of Business staff.... Participants were comfortable sharing their own thoughts and feelings and were willing to engage in the content intentionally. The feedback survey shows that the information was well received. I look forward to partnering together again.”
