Why Intentional Acts of Kindness Matter

Dec 14, 2016

Intentional acts of kindness can make a difference if they feel genuine to the person doing the action.
It's actually been scientifically proven that consistent kind acts over a duration of time can do the following:

- Boost serotonin levels - the feel good hormone
- Increase warmth between people

And actually make a huge difference in someone's day.

Is it important in the business arena? Absolutely. It's been proven to contribute to a happier and more productive work environment. In the research based book "Leading with Kindness," the authors' talk about six virtues that they view as the ingredients of kindness within the workplace:

  • Compassion
  • Integrity
  • Gratitude
  • Authenticity
  • Humility
  • Humor

They feel relations are cultivated and reinforced by these virtues. And, I am sure caring leaders would agree.

As a Kindness Advocate for Schools and Corporations, it gives me great pleasure to align with the positive and pro-active team at goroundtable.com who believe good leadership incorporates kindness.

Hope you can join in - it's never too late - to offer an act of kindness to someone else - you might just make their day.
