Wise Presents A Free Webinar “Creating a Kindness Culture in the Workplace”

On Thursday, May 11 from12:00 – 1:00 pm CST Women Impacting Storebrand Excellence (WISE) will present the FREE Webinar “Creating a Kindness Culture in the Workplace”. Gabriella van Rij: Speaker, Author & Activist for Kindness will discuss:

In our current fast-paced environment, where every mistake we make is amplified through social media and thus blown out of context, we now communicate in a way that has become unfiltered, uncensored, and unacceptable. Through funny analogies and stories, Gabriella van Rij discusses how kindness – in our communication and behavior – plays an important role in creating a robust and emotionally safe workplace for everyone.

Gabriella famously says, “Nobody strikes another coming from a positive place. But all it takes to help another go from a negative space to a positive place is that one moment, one kindness to BE the difference!”

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • The role kindness plays in creating a community and work environment where all feel safe and accepted by others.
  • Hindrances to kindness in the workplace.
  • What kindness looks like in the workplace, practical applications.
  • Empathy and learning to shift your perception to see the other’s perspective.
  • How making it about them, not about you, will help you be a better communicator.
