Book Video Conversations #1

| | Comments (1)

We in the human services field continually call upon ourselves to be there and do for others. In being with others who are experiencing struggles and hardships, we come in contact with situations that can affect us deeply.

In their book Stories of Transformative Leadership in the Human Services, LTG Partners Steve Burghardt and Willie Tolliver offer us guidance and tools for taking care of ourselves so that we can reconnect with our highest intentions. Actively committing ourselves to lifelong learning, the authors say, is a key to fostering a culture of inspiration, innovation and openness in our organizations.

The core of being committed to our lifelong learning is our "commitment to being". How can we cultivate daily practices at work and at home, with coworkers and with our friends and family, that allow us to be with ourselves in a compassionate way?

In this first video, LTG partners Liz Laboy and Steve Burghardt discuss practical guidance offered in Stories of Tranformative Leadership in the Human Services for nurturing compassion and openness towards ourselves. In doing so, we can come back to work each day renewed and even more open and responsive to the people we serve.

Don't hesitate to comment and/or send questions you would like the partners to answer.


Thank you for sharing, my families and I all like your article, reading your article is our best
