Leveraging Thought Leadership


May 13, 2021

Today’s guest is Scott Shute, the Head of Mindfulness and Compassion Programs at Linkedin and the author of the new release book The Full Body Yes.

Compassion is the #1 thing you can do to be successful in business and life.  That philosophy is something Scott shared with the CEO of Linkedin which allowed him to use his history in customer service combined with his passion for wellness to create a position to introduce mainstream mindfulness and operationalized compassion to the company.

Scott explains how internal compassion involves a change from me to we thinking and how if employers care about their employees they need to have the tools and system in place to care for the mental well-being of their employees in the same manner, a gym helps to maintain and grow physical well-being.

We discuss with Scott how his recent book The Full Body Yes benefits not only himself but the company he works for and the other employees there.

If you have a passion for compassion, Scott suggests you find a way to introduce and practice that at your company, and should your organization not be receptive perhaps you need to find somewhere else that will embrace that passion.

If you care for your employees this episode is a trove of information on how to add a gym of compassion and wellness to your company.

 

Three Key Takeaways:

  • Having a real human element of compassion to your thought leadership can help you connect with clients in a deep and meaningful way.
  • Thought leadership bringing compassion to an organization needs to define how to care for employees while still meeting the demands of the job.
  • If you care about your employees find ways to introduce thought leadership to care for the mental well-being of your employees.
