Celebrating 20 Months of Compassion At Work: 1-10
At Next Element, our mission is to bring more compassion to every workplace in the world. Compassionate Accountability® is our signature guiding principle.
One of our strategic objectives is to partner with others to amplify the message of compassion. My podcast, OnCompassion with Dr. Nate, is one way we are doing this. So I am delighted to celebrate our 20th episode this month.
