Daniel E. Martin, Ph.D, is Associate Professor of Management at California State University, East Bay, and Director of Research at the Charter for Compassion.
In his current research, Dr. Dan Martin is looking at hierarchical belief systems (referred to as Social Dominance Orientation, or SDO), and how that can interfere with the ability of leaders to be compassionate in the workplace. His research spans multiple occupations and organizations.
During this webinar, Dr. Martin will share some of what he is learning, and also discuss preliminary results of an interpersonal, compassion-based intervention that may help leaders and organizations address negative behaviors within an institution that can otherwise raise healthcare costs and lower job performance.
