“Unleashing The Power Of Kindness In The Workplace: Enabling Your People To Flourish”
Absenteeism, sickness and depression are at an all-time high in workplaces around the globe, the World Health Organisation asserts that it costs the global workforce an estimated $1 trillion in lost productivity every year. With high levels of absenteeism, sickness and depression and with burnout becoming more prevalent in organisations around the globe, change is way overdue.
In this session we’ll explore the vital importance of kindness, demonstrating that rather than being a ‘fluffy nice-to-have’, kindness is in fact the key foundation that’s needed for building a brighter working world. Reframing our understanding of kindness and using it as the foundation for everything we do, we can truly unleash its power and enable people to flourish at an individual, team and an organisational level, making ripples that spread far and wide.
