Compassion – noun[ U ]   approvingUK  /kəmˈpæʃ.ən/ US  /kəmˈpæʃ.ən/ A strong feeling of sympathy and sadness for the suffering or bad luck of others and a wish to help them.

Compassion is much more than just a feeling towards others, it applies to feelings within oneself too. You become aware and engender feelings of compassion towards what others are going through and actively show concern towards their need.

Quantum teams work together to lighten the load when others become weighed down and inoperative from time to time. They show empathy and care towards any part of the team that isn’t coping at any given time. Quantum teams know that there is no separation from self, they are all one and they function together without judgement. There is no I or them, there is just team as one.

We lose the ego and we set aside fear when we work in a compassionate way. Quantum teams will think the unthinkable, they will dream the impossible and they will act in a way that is exceptional. Collaboration is borne out of compassion; sharing and inclusion lead to greater outcomes. Quantum teams might include clients during a project where the client shares in the success of new developments. Quantum teams may include competitors where different clients are served by the same outputs.

“Compassion opens up Feeling this common human bond and thus some understanding even of those who are our enemies or by whom we feel threatened, thus making forgiveness possible. Showing others respect and taking care of their dignity. Treating others as we would like to be treated.”

The principle of compassion resonates with the quality of complex adaptive systems BEING adaptive, in a co-creative dialogue with their environment. It also resonates with the contextual nature of quantum systems’ being and identity.” (Danah Zohar)
