Compassionate Communication Toolkit

During the pandemic, many members of the McMaster community have experienced struggles, losses, and challenges. The Compassionate Communication Toolkit has been developed to support staff, faculty and student leaders who want to learn more about how best to communicate with their team members or employees, with mental health and well-being in mind, as we transition back to campus.

Many leaders have carried heavy workloads and responsibilities during the pandemic. We offer this toolkit with the intent to make their jobs easier – to provide them with quick and helpful reminders and tips that they can consider and employ with their teams as we return to campus.

If your department or committee would like someone to speak to your team about the Compassionate Communication Toolkit please contact us at to discuss.

We're looking for your feedback. We would like to hear from the users of the Compassionate Communication Toolkit. Please take a moment to fill out this brief questionnaire.
