“Compassion is having an awareness of others, a mindset of wishing the best for others, and the courage to take action.”-Scott Shute
Scott Shute sits at the intersection of ancient wisdom traditions and the business world. He currently leads Mindfulness and Compassion programs at LinkedIn. After twenty five years of customer-oriented leadership roles, he found his dream job, where he gets to utilize his entire skill set and embrace his passions. In this work he explores the possibility of human potential, helping employees become the very best version of themselves.
He has been studying and practicing mindfulness and related wisdom teachings since he was thirteen years old, and teaching since he was in college. Ultimately, his intention is to build these practices and consciousness into the very fabric of the company – how we develop products, how we sell, how we service – in a way that serves our employees as well as our customers.
His another passion is photography. He always loved photography, but over the last few years it’s become a deepening obsession. He’s created a commercial website so that he can share and hone his craft, while donating the proceeds to charity.
