Wanted: Compassionate Leaders

Joost is again with Eveline at the familiar kitchen table. The reason is Eveline's opinion piece in NRC Handelsblad about compassion in the workplace. According to Eveline, scientific studies and practical examples show that compassion in the workplace is of enormous value for employees, managers and employers. Yet she often sees a 'fear culture' in organizations and companies. 'Fear culture' is also the word that fell to the tax authorities after the Allowance affair.
'Employees are just like people' sounds obvious, but according to Eveline it is used far too little in work environments. 

An episode about the value of leadership with compassion, what happens when compassion is missing, and how we can apply compassion more in the workplace.
