Compassion in the Workplace

Compassion in the Workplace Expressing Sympathy is a wonderful tool to have in the workplace, particularly when you are having difficulty with a certain colleague or coworker. Expressing sympathy gives that person the opportunity to connect with you directly and let you know how he/she feels about the situation, and it is a good way to show your true feelings. If you are going through a difficult time with your co-worker and would like to get someone to express sympathy for you, there are a few things to consider. Here are some examples of situations where expressing sympathy may be helpful to you: When an employee’s birthday is coming up and you are having trouble coping with your own stress or anxiety, showing sympathy for your coworker may make it easier for you to make arrangements for his/her celebration. Perhaps your co-worker needs some quiet time away from the office so you can go out on your own to enjoy the occasion, or perhaps you just want to spend some time with him/her, but simply cannot find the time to do so due to other responsibilities. In either situation, expressing sympathy may be a good idea. You may feel that your company’s employees have no need for sympathy, but this may not be the case.
