I stopped in my tracks after sending you the note last week...
Because I got an unexpected email from my father.
My Dad is Robert Kaplan, a professor at Harvard Business School, and I didn’t know he got the notes I send you :)
Until he responded to the email about the launch of Compassion Teacher Training in March.
“Did I ever show you,” he wrote, “the Cleveland Clinic videos on empathy?”
“The CEO had them made,” my dad said, “after he heard feedback from employees that while Cleveland Clinic was a great hospital, many of its employees were distant from the patients and did not show empathy towards them."
Compassion has become a thing at one of the most respected hospitals in the country... and Harvard Business School.
Also last week my friend Erica Ariel Fox, a top CEO advisor, sent a new video featuring herself — produced by one of the top recruiting firms in the world — talking about how employees in 2018 now look to CEOs to help them “find their place in the world.”
CEOs used to focus on driving numbers on a spreadsheet. Now, in 2018, compassion is required, too.
This can’t be a coincidence.
It's a sign... that compassion is more important than ever.
It’s KEY to the success of CEOs, founders, coaches and non-profit leaders.
Anyone interacting with people, boards, investors, clients, employees.
Compassion makes us better at business. And better at relationships, at work, and at home.
Today as I write you, after a weekend with my family at a health conference in Utah, I feel more passionate than ever about our Compassion Teacher Training program, the first course of its kind that I know of in the country.
I encourage you to apply today, so you can learn the latest on neuroscience, Buddhist wisdom, and the brain, and learn how, in JUST THREE MONTHS, you can re-wire your mind for compassion, and teach others about compassion too.

Who is this good for?
Founders and CEOs, executives in business or start-ups, coaches and therapists, yoga teachers and aspiring yogis, creatives who want to better understand their clients, and people in non-profits, government, and NGOs who want to better understand their boards, donors, and customers.
This is also for you if you want to deepen your meditation practice... or become a certified teacher.
Or if you simply seek more compassionate relationships in your life.
In 2018, compassion is not a woo-woo thing. I’m increasingly convinced it is essential to leadership, to partnerships, to retaining employees, and more. I can’t wait to hear the benefits you experience if you join us.
Cheers to compassion (and Dad, I love you),
