    Economy of Kindness: How Kindness Transforms Your Bottom Line

    In this interactive keynote, Linda helps employees and leaders at all levels understand that elevating your culture of kindness improves communication, boosts teamwork, promotes interpersonal interaction and customer service. Kindness in the workplace enhances employee morale, increases retention, and creates loyalty from customers and clients. Linda will illustrate how kindness in action makes a difference using examples of how kindness can impact individuals, communities, and businesses. She will share her three greatest lessons from her own personal story and how she became a “kindness catalyst”: the size of the action doesn’t matter, there is often an unexpected ripple effect, and giving and receiving are often experienced differently. She will invite attendees to add to the conversation around why kindness can be so crucial in a business setting and what value our individual actions can have
    on the bottom line of our organizations.
