12 September 2016 – At the occasion of the launch of my book, I joined a panel on business leadership with H.H. the Dalai Lama in Brussels, on September 12, 2016. The Dalai Lama told me: “This book is very important. If you conduct human activity, including activities in business, with a motivation of compassion, then you are more likely to experience success, including business success. Compassion makes you stronger, not weaker. This works for you as individual, but also for organizations. Customers will respect you and in the long run reward you for it. Moreover, a compassionate attitude will help you to never have regrets. Even if you make a mistake, if your motivation is compassion, you will have no regret”.
