Stranger Things Pt. 2: How to Have Compassion On Those Above and Below You
It's hard enough to have Compassion on our peers but how do we have Compassion on those above us and below us in the organization chart? All too often we hear blaming and conjecturing but rarely does an executive take action and have Compassion on the grassroots or does a citizen have compassion on their public servants. To put it in Stranger Things terms, it takes a lot of energy to create a gate between the layers of an organization and most often we aren't willing to do it. By looking at how in Stranger Things S1E5 the children work together with their teacher, Mr. Clarke, we can start to see how we, as magnanimous leaders, can become the flea to the acrobat, able to collaborate between the layers and create gates so that others can traverse those dimensions as well.
