‘The Power of Self-Compassion’


The Business Record accepts suggestions for articles, videos or other materials to share with the business community. Des Moines-area business consultant Kevin Pokorny shared this with the newsroom team recently: A short YouTube video called “The Power of Self-Compassion” by Kristen Neff, Ph.D. and Christopher Germer, Ph.D., 2018. He wrote: “They recently published ‘The Mindful Self-Compassion Workbook.’ It is a short clip interviewing people (not actors) about the meaning of self-compassion, how we extend compassion to others, and what blocks us from extending compassion to ourselves, and how would our workplaces and world be different if we were more compassionate toward ourselves. I used this clip in a self-compassion seminar I facilitated for bank employees. I had them individually reflect on the questions posed by the interviewer in the clip and share in pairs. The employees provided feedback that this exercise and questions were extremely valuable to them.”
