What is CCT?
The Stanford Compassion Cultivation Training Program (CCT) is a professional development program designed at Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education. The program includes practical tools and exercises designed to enhance your awareness, compassion and resilience.
Why is it Important in the context of an organization?
CCT will help you relate more positively to others and engage more successfully with clients, staff and coworkers, to improve employee retention and overall workplace performance.
Research shows it is possible to learn compassion and leadership skills – these are not just traits you’re born with, or without. High performing leaders and work environments are compassionate. And training helps! (Read more here)
