Self Compassion is a key, and often misunderstood, component of effective leadership. We can all, including established leaders, be negatively affected by doubts, fears, and criticism. This is exponentially true when making decisions – impacting friends and family, business outcomes, lives, and livelihoods. Especially in today’s world of uncertainty, constant instability, and a rush to “disruptive modelling” in the workplace, clarity of thought and action are increasingly vital.

Self-compassion is an indispensable tool that facilitates clear decision-making in the workplace.

This in-person workshop will be led and facilitated by Yon Na, PhD. Yon is an organizational psychologist who helps executives, leaders & teams accelerate performance by applying organizational psychology principles, and has led efforts in companies including Warner Bros., The New York Times, Microsoft, Johnson & Johnson, and Nordstrom. Dr. Yon’s research centers on the intersection of identity, culture, and leadership. She shares her research on Asian women in leadership at conferences, companies, and colleges. Yon is also the founder of Radiance HQ, an organization dedicated to advancing Asian women in the workplace.
