The September 17, 2007, issues of Forbes magazine talks about Angela Braly who is the Chief Executive of health insurance giant Wellpoint. In this article she demonstrates caring and compassion for her employees. She preaches a concept called Mood Elevator where colleagues assess themselves from “Depressed” and “Angry-Hostile”, the lowest two floors, to “grateful” and “Wise-Insightful”, the highest two floors. To end meetings, she sometimes asks people to say where their mood elevator is. If too many are low, she extends the discussion so that nobody feels unloved. What a great example of caring and compassion for others.
