Awakening Compassion at Work: The Quiet Power That Elevates People and Organizations, by Jane Dutton and Monica Worline, was chosen by Greater Good‘s editorial staff as a favorite book of 2017. “While employers might consider compassion unnecessary ‘fluff,'” they write, “Worline and Dutton provide proof that it’s anything but—and instead show how compassion is a win-win for organizations.”
