Workshop Wednesday 13th March 2019 10:45 - How to get results out of self-compassion?

Kati Ilvonen and Hanna-Mari Loisa

You thought that self-compassion is lame? What if it is actually key for better results?
Thanks to Google everyone knows the importance of the psychological safety in team performance. We wanted to understand how you build it. The results of the research done at Ericsson Finland in co-operation with Hanken School of Economics, University of Helsinki and Stanford University reveals one important ingredient. It all starts from oneself. It starts from your ability to self-compassion. Self-compassion meaning ability to listen and connect to your own feelings and needs, being kind and caring towards yourself and understanding yourself in hard moments. The research done at Ericsson Finland R&D shows that self-compassion relates to higher levels of experienced psychological safety, team trust and especially team authenticity. Same research also reveals how mindfulness impacts on opportunity recognition, proactive behavior and autonomous choice. These all together create conditions for the optimal atmosphere for learning and collaboration, enabling high-performance.
Self-compassion can be best learned through practising; thus, we want to focus on self-compassion exercises and cases on this workshop.
