A bit of solid ground

I’ve recently heard lots of people talking about white noise. I know that feeling, it can be hard to focus on everyday work when bigger change is taking place around us. 

So I began to look into ways to anchor myself into my days. This is when I came across an article by Leah Weiss, professor in compassionate leadership. In it, she points to purpose as our professional and personal compass, giving us a reference point to steer toward. She also suggests a couple of ways to find that anchor in our own everyday. If, like me, you’re looking for a bit of solid ground, this might help.

Leah Weiss is a researcher, consultant, professor and author. Late last summer, I spoke to Leah about compassion in leadership and why this matters in education, you can find the full interview here.

Wishing you good health and happiness,
