Care, Share & Inspire

Care, Share & Inspire

A collaborative programme between the Janki Foundation and Brahma Kumaris UK for health and social care professionals.

Most health and social care professionals identify their compassionate, caring role as their strength and that which gives them a sense of purpose. The events of recent times have unfortunately made many critically examine their vocation, even to the extent of questioning where personal responsibility lies in a system where organisational leadership is struggling.

To celebrate both the Janki Foundation’s 25th Anniversary and the ongoing support that Brahma Kumaris provide to healthcare professionals, we invite you to spend a day with us to explore new models of good practice to enable health and social care professionals and organisations to continue to function effectively, and even to thrive within the current constraints.  Highlights of the day will include keynote speakers, dialogue, panel discussion, poetry, meditation and small-group conversations.

Inspiring through compassionate leadership

An evidence-based approach to transforming the leadership and cultures of our organisations and institutions is desperately needed. By sustaining compassion in human communities, we can cultivate wisdom, humanity, presence and high-quality in all we do. This presentation will offer a simple, radical and powerfully effective strategy for change.  It requires leaders to nurture compassion within themselves and across institutions, to support healthier and happier institutions and communities. Leaders at every level must have the courage and authenticity to embody compassion in their leadership now and for the long-term future.
