About the session

This talk delves into the fundamental differences between mere niceties and genuine kindness in leadership. Contrary to the perception of kindness as a soft or secondary trait, the talk argues that kindness is a powerful tool that significantly benefits business. It impacts not only team dynamics but also the bottom line, making a compelling case for why kindness makes business sense.

Drawing from personal beliefs and a passion for compassion, the session explores the idea that understanding others' perspectives can profoundly change workplace interactions. It emphasises the importance of assuming positive intent and how this mindset shift can create a more harmonious and productive work environment.

The call to action, "Go beyond nice, go be kind," encapsulates the essence of the talk. It encourages leaders to move past superficial niceties and embrace kindness as a core leadership philosophy. This approach not only enriches team experiences but also paves the way for greater success and fulfilment for all involved.
