MY Kindness Engagement Index™ for Individuals

This limited-time complimentary offer is an invitation to complete an individual self-assessment to measure one’s Kindness Factor within the three themes of kindness (Oneself, Colleagues, Community) and the 12-Character Traits of Kindness.   Once completed you can download the aggregate global data.  This means you are seeing the results of how everyone has answered each question.  This is a great practical learning tool that challenges you to see kindness through many lenses and encourages you to build your competency in each of the twelve Character Traits of Kindness.  The magic of building your character is that you can start anywhere, any place and to any degree that you want. These traits belong to you at the end of the day; they are not a commodity that, if given away, disappears. In fact, if you share them, they grow.

Complete the survey to view the global index score and download a user-friendly definition of each character trait and practical ideas to jumpstart your kindness dimension scores today!

Kindness Engagement Index™ for Teams & Organizations (KEI)

The KEI for Teams and Organizations can be completed in 6 minutes and looks holistically at your organization’s emotional culture.  Your culture is deeply affected by the aggregate emotions of the people within the organization.  These emotions are observable both positive and negative and witnessed verbally and non-verbally, thus being expressed through one’s character and behaviors.  These emotions are manifested in ways such as employees feeling safe at work, that what they do matters, is purposeful and that they have a strong sense of belonging and community.  The goal of this survey and mentoring process is to move people to consciously manage their employees’ emotions as equally as we do their mindset thus creating relationships of depth and integrity and an upsurge in employee engagement.

A New Competency for a New Era

60-90 min

This inspirational and thought-provoking program brings to life the true value of selfless acts of kindness at work through the discussion of 12 Character-Building Traits that raise one’s self-awareness and personal accountability for the development of a respectful and caring workplace culture. Full of research, client engagement stories and practical steps to put into practice- this keynote always leaves people on their feet.

The Optimistic Leader:

The Power of a Positive Workplace

60-90 min

Optimism is related to the word “optimize,” which is to “make the best of” the circumstances or given situation by taking responsibility for the energy and vitality you bring to the space surrounding you.   Everyone loves to work with optimistic individuals who have a propensity to demonstrate higher confidence, are more motivated to find solutions; rather than giving up or avoiding an issue, as well they tend to adapt more readily to what comes their way — in short, they are resilient and know how to bounce back by using a wider array of positive emotions.

Compassionate Action

The Deeper Stories Beyond Kindness

60-90 min

Compassion is the bedrock of a healthy society.  Each person must assume responsibility to craft engaged and meaningful lives for themselves and others through compassionate actions.  We all know that the people who make a difference in our lives are not the ones with the credentials, but the ones with genuine concern and care for us.  This keynote encourages everyone to reach inside and embrace the innate wellspring of compassion within and discover the four aspects of a compassionate steward, and then, to take responsibility to impact the world around them.

Four Generations- One Workplace:

Embracing the Strengths of Inclusion

60-90 min

Based on her bestselling book this session touches on best practices, social research and wrongful perceptions in order to create the fabric of a respectful workplace ripe for recruitment, retention and high levels of engagement. It’s time to acknowledge that it isn’t our differences that divide us but the judgments we have created about one another that interferes with our collaborative efforts.   In this session, you will learn about the RAW foundation guidelines for each cohort (Request, Approach, Work Credo) and to come away with a user-friendly outline on how to stack the Generational DECK™ (Develop, Engage, Collaborate and Keep).

We create a safe space where positive learning can occur.
