This entails a core focus on trust and connections, including with the areas of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) and Sustainability. This will contribute to maximizing employee commitment, innovation, and productivity. Facing the world with sensitivity, wisdom and commitment requires skill and practice. A person-centered approach, based on the science of compassion, is the essential resource in the post-COVID world.
