Big news today: I’m bringing our first medical doctor on to my live interview series, The Porch.
I know what you’re probably thinking… “Lindsay, I’ve heard enough about COVID already. What’s this doctor going to say that I didn’t already know?”
Not to worry. We’re not talking about COVID at all.
We’ll be talking about COMPASSION. (Bet you didn’t see that one coming, right?!)
I'm thrilled to welcome Dr. David Rakel to The Porch to talk about Compassion in the Workplace. He’s the author of The Compassionate Connection, where he outlines the research behind compassion and healing in doctor-patient relationships.
This book turned treating people compassionately from a ‘nice to have’ to a ‘critical’ status. And you’ll find out why when you join us!
We’ll be talking about the role of compassion in healing, and how this translates into the workplace. The way we treat our teammates deeply impacts outcomes.
We’ll also cover practical ways to make a compassionate connection:
Dr. David Rakel was founder and director of the University of Wisconsin Integrative Medicine program. He is now professor and chair of the Department of Family & Community Medicine at the University of New Mexico.
