Description

Turning Compassion Into Action: A Movement Towards Responsibility

What do 33 years of leadership experience, 5 years of research, a trip to India and over 20 thousand people have in common?… a confirmation that every one of us is responsible to reach out and put our compassion into action. Compassion is not a commodity: you can’t trade it on the stock market, it does not come with an expiration date, nor is it of limited supply, and therefore, you cannot lose it when you use it.

Whether you are a parent proudly wading through the teen years, a leader dedicated to genuine service delivery, a passionate community volunteer, or anyone who believes that actively giving of yourself changes the world then inspiring yourself to take personal responsibility is crucial. Olivia McIvor brings experiences and lessons from her research in India and her experiences with clients across North America. Olivia will remind, inspire, and lovingly provoke everyone to take action and turn their compassion into actions in the workplace.
