Title: Cultivating Kindness
In a professional setting, “kindness” is being trustworthy, humble, supportive, transparent, honest, and consistent. Starting with those attributes, we’ll discuss why all organizations need to care about cultivating kindness. The significant effect of kindness on improving trust, increasing morale, improving productivity is well documented, and this presentation focuses on how to achieve those business results through cultivating kindness.
The presentation discusses the significant data on how cultivating kindness can directly improve engagement, retention and organizational productivity. We will also discuss how tolerating a lack of kindness can lead to illegal behaviors such as harassment, racism, and sexism. Bridgerland Chapter members will understand both the business case for cultivating kindness in their organization and have a roadmap for how to strengthen their culture to improve business results.
