What is Compassion?

By definition – compassion is the sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.

I’ve learned that most people didn’t grow up in compassionate homes, so the idea of compassion is a new concept to most of us. It was a new concept to me – but it was my penny drop. We’ll get to that.

Compassion in Coaching is where I lead other coaches, individually and in groups, to grow in compassion. Compassion for their clients, for their friends, for their family and most importantly for themselves.

I can’t give away what I don’t have

I started my career thinking that I love people just fine, but I realized because I didn’t have compassion for myself, I wasn’t able to support others in the ways they needed to be supported. On my journey, I became aware that I didn’t know what compassion was and because I didn’t know how to be compassionate.
