Welcome to the WCC Project

The MRG WCC Project is a place to engage our community in the cultivation and use of Wisdom, Courage and Compassion as individuals and in organizations.

Why We Believe This is Important

It takes more than skills, experience, good ideas and hard work to do the best that we can both as individuals and as organizations.  We believe that to reach the highest levels of performance and contribution we need these skills, experience and ideas to be anchored by Wisdom, Courage and Compassion.

 Why Wisdom, Courage and Compassion?

Wisdom connects us to intelligence, insight, clarity of thinking, knowledge and its growth through experience and reflection.
Courage connects us to taking action even in the face of fear, moving forward, taking a chance, taking a risk, being bolder, and being brave enough to dare.
Compassion connects us with others, with their well-being; it reminds us to be open-minded, to watch our judgments; to turn our caring into action in support of those who need us.

To reach our highest performance we need to anchor ideas with #Wisdom #Courage & #Compassion

The Invitation

We invite you to share your thoughts, ideas and questions.  Maybe you have insight into how one or all of these practices can be developed in individuals, or have practical applications to share.  You may have a completely different point of view about any or all of these and their value within organizations.  Whatever your points of view, thoughts or experiences, we welcome your input through comments, a blog post or an interview… any and all respectful contributions are welcome!

What’s next

Each month, we will share a couple of posts exploring different ideas in this space, including guest-authored posts. With each post, our intent is to stimulate conversation around future ideas. Here is our upcoming schedule:

August 26:  Wisdom Explored

September 15:  Excerpts from the Wisdom 2.0 Business Conference

October 6:  Courage Explored

October 26:  Courage in Practice – an interview with Feena May from ICRC

November 19:  Compassion Explored

December 8:  Compassion in Practice – an interview with Sarah Cox from L.L. Bean

Congratulations, Tricia, Jim et al. on this next step!

MRG continues to step beyond, what is simply in front, in order to bring us all forward! I love the combination of these three practices for our organizations, and am excited to listen and engage with all our MRG contributions. Thank you for this thinking…

Wisdom, courage, and compassion – great concepts to keep alive in our lives everyday! I look forward to the conversations. All the best.

Especially as we get older! Many of us are moving into the next phase of our lives (retirement???) that will require wisdom to know we need help, courage to face the challenges, and the compassion to reach out whenever possible.
