Compassion is one of the most important elements of leadership. It helps leaders understand what their team members and followers need, and it helps direct them to the best possible actions. As a leader, compassion comes from putting ourselves in others’ shoes and drawing from God’s own heart of compassion. But as a leader, compassion is quickly thrown out the window when we are faced with pressure and negative feedback. The purpose of this download is to teach students how to draw near to the compassionate heart of God and what that can mean in their own lives and leadership styles.
