Scott Shute leads the Compassion and Mindfulness programs at LinkedIn.
After twenty-five years of customer-oriented leadership roles, Scott found his dream job, where he gets to utilize his entire skill set and all of his passions.
Scott has been studying and practicing mindfulness and related wisdom teachings since he was thirteen years old, and teaching since he was in college. In this work he gets to explore the possibility of human potential, helping employees become the very best version of themselves. With mindfulness, his team is building employees' capabilities around resilience, self-awareness, and growth mindset. With compassion, they're working to expand employees' capability and capacity for service.

His operations lens helps him focus on scaling the work they do.

Leading regular meditation sessions. Teaching classes about compassion and growth mindset. Taking time for photography when he travels for business. Changing work from the inside out.
