Compassion - a leadership trait sometimes overlooked

Your best you: Thoughtfulness, consciousness, and compassion.

From the playground to the boardroom, our children do and will hold the keys to shaping the culture and direction of the world we share. In a world where people too often turn to apathy and disengagement in the face of global issues, it is now more vital than ever that we change the way we make decisions and act for people, other animals and the planet.

Compassion Traits

We at Redtailtoys wish to help empower all kids, old and young, to practice and develop these compassion traits in partnership with our handmade, eco-friendly and sustainable toys and games, but also in partnership with feedingamerica.org to help the millions of children currently going hungry in our own neighborhoods.  Here are some compassion traits that we believe our toys, mission, and charity-work help us and others to develop.  

1.  Act w/ purpose

2.  Collaborate & communicate openly

3.  Be hopeful & optimistic

4.  Think critically

5.  Inspire peers

6.  Adapt and be resilient

7.  Be a team plater

8.  Empathize

9.  Be introspective

Compassionate Leadership

The world needs our unique perspective, talents and voice to make real change happen.

Every child, young and old, has a role to play. You may build your skills to use your voice, abilities and interests to speak up and act on social and environmental issues that matter to you and your community.

A compassionate citizen and/or leader is someone who considers how a decision will impact all creatures and our planet, and works tirelessly to improve the lives of others. When we say “leader,” we mean absolutely anyone, whether it be an individual who leads by example on a day-to-day basis or a CEO. Growing these traits helps you to make a difference for your community and to tackle challenges you are passionate about through service projects.
