Passion and compassion!
We need to create organisations and enterprises that are at the same time both passionate and compassionate...
I know many colleagues still struggle to understand what I mean by passionate and compassionate but the dictionary definition of passion is a strong or extravagant fondness, enthusiasm, or desire for anything or the object of such a fondness or desire. The dictionary definition of compassion is a deep awareness, sympathy and understanding of the suffering of others and importantly wanting to do something about it. Wherever we learn, play or work we need to build both passion and compassion into the culture and the fabric of everything we do if we want to release the extraordinary potential that exists within our children, our colleagues, our families and friends.
