Kindness in the Workplace: A Skillset That Boosts Performance and Culture

Kindness in the Workplace: A Skillset That Boosts Performance and Culture Webinar

On Demand

Duration: 45 minutes

About the Webinar

In an ever-changing business environment, kindness in the workplace can sound like a “nice to have” rather than an essential. But kindness matters more now than ever, as new ways of working have given employees more options — making engagement and retention imperative.

Our research has shown that today’s successful leaders must be more “person-focused” and able to work well with people from varying teams, departments, countries, cultures, and backgrounds.

Fortunately, kindness is a skillset that can be taught. It plays a key part in emotional intelligence and leadership effectiveness. Kinder interactions among leaders and employees can lead to more effective communication, which can drive positive business outcomes.

In honor of World Kindness Day (Nov. 13), watch this webinar to find out how to help leaders understand why kindness, empathy, and compassion matter — and how to practice kindness in the workplace.
