“Spreading Compassion in the Cubicles”

About Tim Sanders

Sanders, the chief solutions officer for Yahoo!, shared his near-death experience with a capacity audience at the October 2 kick off of the Dean’s Distinguished Speaker Series at the Graduate School of Management. An energetic dot-com veteran, Sanders linked a web of his own experiences together with amusing yet telling stories from the frontlines of business to explain his brand of “bizlove.”

Grounded in practical steps, Sanders urges a more positive, softer approach in which generosity is the best strategy for individual and corporate prosperity. For businesspeople, Sanders says this means “sensibly sharing your knowledge, your network and your compassion.” The end result, he says, is a “lovecat”—a nice, smart person who succeeds in business and in life and becomes an agent of change.

As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
