From the Back Cover
For decades, we’ve been told the key to prosperity is to look out for number one. But recent science shows that to achieve durable success, we need to be more than just achievers; we need to be compassionate achievers.
New research in biology, neuroscience, and economics has found that compassion—recognizing a problem or caring about another’s pain and making a commitment to help—not only improves others’ lives; it can transform our own. Based on the most recent studies from a wide range of fields, The Compassionate Achiever reveals the profound benefits of practicing compassion, including more constructive relationships, improved intelligence, and increased resiliency.
To help us attain these benefits, Christopher L. Kukk, Ph.D., the founding director of the Center for Compassion, Creativity and Innovation, shares his unique program for cultivating compassion. He identifies the four skills every compassionate achiever should master . . .
- LISTENING to identify the problem or challenge
- UNDERSTANDING to discover what options can help
- CONNECTING to capabilities that can address the issue or obstacle
- ACTING to solve
. . . and outlines how to develop each with clear explanations, easy-to-implement strategies, actionable exercises, and real-world examples.
With The Compassionate Achiever we can achieve success in our own lives and create more productive workplaces and healthier, less violent communities.
