How do we navigate a completely unknown territory? 2020 was a year like no other. We were thrown into a virtual reality that had us struggling to see through the discomfort into what was coming next. Without a road map, it's been more important than ever to adapt during these unpredictable times. Communicating clearly and often and celebrating and recognizing your teams has been crucial to business success.

How have you helped your employees feel engaged, empowered, even motivated while we've moved through these months of uncertainty? During this virtual kindness program we'll discuss Adaptability, Communication, Recognition and Radical Self Care as key kindness strategies.

Using data and case studies, attendees will focus on how to celebrate employees and elevate a culture of kindness.Why is kindness so crucial in the workplace, now more than ever? A culture of kindness improves team performance and company morale. Acts of kindness strengthen employee engagement and reduce burnout. Kindness practices attract and retain high performing leaders and build stronger organizations.

This highly interactive program will allow participants to be “seen” and “heard” through our engaged virtual format. Part Inspiration. Part Motivation. You'll leave this program with new ideas to take action and thrive through these unusual times!

-Recognize why cultivating a culture of kindness in the workplace is imperative: Reputation, Retention and Recruitment.
-Formulate ways to improve relationships and build stronger virtual teams through intentional engagement in acts of kindness.
-Learn how “kindness” and “happiness” are linked in times of uncertainty.
-Discuss and explore kindness practices that would help build stronger strategic alliances.
