Why I support the Compassion Coalition
I am doing research on compassion work. Compassion work is work where compassion is part of the work role. We found that compassion – if lived out in the work role – is a source of workers’ health, well-being, engagement, and work meaningfulness. It looks like there is no “too much compassion”. What would a world look like where nurses, child care workers, doctors, priests, teachers, police officers, to name a few, are doing not all this excellent compassion work every day? What can we do to support these professions in their work role accomplishments? This is research, worth doing it.
