Scaling Compassion: How to Re-humanize the World

If you get and go where people are most hurting and care about them when you're there, suffering they can't live with becomes pain they can

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

I shared the above video in my presentation on listening in Moscow in October, 2017 to managers from the Russian Federation.

Although it was in English with Russian subtitles, after I showed it, I had the audience at hello and kept their attention for six hours.

Increasingly, I am presenting the Gladys Wilson and Naomi Feil video at most of my presentations with the simple question, “What do you think?”

I then follow with, “What would happen if we could spread this around the world?”

At a recent presentation someone yelled out, “It would heal everything that is wrong and re-humanize the world.”
