Scott is the former Head of Mindfulness and Compassion at LinkedIn, a role he effectively created for himself after years as the VP of Global Customer Operations at LinkedIn.


Scott thinks of himself as operating at the intersection of the workplace and ancient wisdom traditions. He blends his experience as a Silicon Valley executive with his lifelong practice and passion as a wisdom seeker and teacher.


In his most recent role at LinkedIn, Scott was the Head of Mindfulness and Compassion programs.


He has been a pioneer in creating workplace mindfulness programs and advancing the discussion around compassion in the work context. He has continued this pioneering journey as the author of the highly acclaimed book ‘The Full Body Yes’.


In this episode we spoke about his own leadership journey, and as he describes it, the journey from ‘me to we’. We also spoke about what mindfulness and compassion looked like at LinkedIn, and how they set out to measure it.
