Ted talk - compassion gets a hard time

In early 2019, Kirstie Papworth was invited to give a TeDx talk on her specialist subject - compassion. Having studied the effects of compassion in organisations, and the psychological effects of self-compassion on leaders, Kirstie’s talk was a broad introduction to compassion.

Compassion is often thought of as being soft and fluffy, but it’s actually a powerful, resourcing choice which is incredibly good for us as individuals and societies. In her talk, Kirstie covers some of the commercial, neuro-scientific, and organisational benefits of compassion.

The TeDx team are editing the talk, so as soon as it’s live we’ll put the link here.

EY lean in keynote speaker

Kirstie was recently invited to give a keynote talk at EY’s LeanIn Circle, Jersey. The talk examined why coaching and mentoring make a difference to careers. As well as covering some of the behavioural change and psychological aspects of this topic, delegates were treated to ‘top 5 pitfalls to avoid’ - healyitis, anyone?!

A thoroughly enjoyable evening with a warm, enthusiastic audience.
