Being kind to others matters. It is impactful in so many
Right now this is weighing on my mind to be kind to others based
on an interaction I had just yesterday in our dealership. Let me
share with you the story… (Watch the video to get the story and not
just the notes!)
So here are a few notes and lessons I’ve learned about kindness
over the years:
- Everyone is affected by an act of kindness.
Kindness is contagious and you never know just how big of an impact
a small gesture of kindness can have.
- Kindness improves our quality of life. It
brings people together.
- Being nice actually impacts our psyche and the way we
look at ourselves. Doing something good for someone else
makes us feel good without any expectation of return.
- Spreading joy is an act of kindness. So smile
at strangers, and laugh with other people!
Here are some notes and things you can do to spread kindness as
a leader in your workplace:
- Lead by example. Others will emulate you.
If you are kind, and you say please, and thank you, your people
- Be kind to others. At work, you are all
working for a common goal. Remind yourself of that before you
remind others of it.
- If you can’t say something nice… you know the
saying, so let’s keep it positive. Build people up, don’t tear them
- Recognize one another’s strengths. A pat
on the back can go a long way. And as a leader, one thing I have
seen over and over again – is that people will fulfill what you
tell them they are. So if you tell them they are great – in most
cases, they will live up to your expectations and be great!
So, take a breath, share a smile, and tell someone they are
awesome today! Be kind! Talk to you soon!
