Self-compassion does not mean being egotistical, self-pitying or narcissistic. It comes from being aware when you're feeling stressed, angry or suffering. It is not about avoiding or refusing to acknowledge these feelings. Instead it is about a desire to forgive, not blame. Rather than telling yourself you're an idiot, recognize that all humans make mistakes. Be your inner friend, not enemy or disapproving judge. This helps you develop compassion for others. People who show themselves compassion suffer less anxiety and depression. They cope better with unexpected life events.

• Learn that compassionate leadership begins with showing self-compassion.
• Show compassion to yourself to reduce anxiety and depression.
• Notice when you are feeling stressed.
• Be kind and forgiving of your own mistakes.
• Become more connected and less isolated.
