The ROI of Kindness. | Lead with Hart

 

Kind·ness    /ˈkīn(d)nəs/   Noun   -   the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.

In both our personal and professional lives, there is one trait that, when put into practice, always reaps a positive return—the act of a kindness.

 

Kindness in action looks like this.

  • It's the boss who considers the stress their employee is facing and generously works with them to success.
     
  • It's the vendor who decides to help a client through a difficult season by putting a payment on hold.
     
  • It's the employee who refuses to participate in petty gossip about their colleagues.
     
  • It's the entrepreneur who, when faced with sharp accusations, decides to answer respectfully.
     

As far as I know, nobody has ever sued another person because they were "too kind" or "too generous" or "too considerate" to them.

As we head out into our days, let's remember that gentle answers turn away wrath and kindness has a way of transforming difficult situations into something beautiful.

Good leaders understand that loyalty also means unleashing people. | Lead with Hart

Loyalty matters. People don’t leave you because they aren’t “loyal”. Many times they leave because they are being loyal to themselves and aren’t willing to stay where they can’t make the most difference with their lives.

Most humans aren’t “jerks”. They actually want to know they are making a real difference. If they can make a difference working with you, they will usually stay.

Yet, some leave. Sometimes, it’s because their life mission is beckoning. Encourage them!

What storms teach us about perception and the power of the positive flip. | Lead with Hart

The other night my husband poked his head in my office and said, “You got to see this! It looks like hell is coming across the lake at us.” To which I responded, “Let me grab my camera.” 😏

It’s funny, but there’s also something revealing about our responses to the storms of life. Sometimes we get worried, other times we may be afraid, and other times we face them with expectation.

How about a positive flip?
