Dancing in the Discomfort Zone: Linda Cohen; The KINDNESS Catalyst
With host Anne Bonney, CSP and guest Linda Cohen
In this episode of the Dancing in the Discomfort Zone podcast, guest Linda Cohen joins host Anne Bonney, CSP to discuss kindness in everyday actions.
Kindness. Something we all enjoy and value from the people around us, and something some people may think is missing too often in human interactions, but this week’s guest has a different perspective, and she has a great point.
In this episode, we talk about:
- How she got started working in this arena.
- Why kindness is so important.
- How acts of kindness don’t have to be massive and epic!
- Small acts are what truly make a difference in the day-to-day!

Let’s face it, life is uncomfortable. Whether it’s interacting with other humans (or trying to), going after our goals and improving our lives, or understanding other people’s perspectives, preferences, and proclivities, being able to face the discomforts in life with courage, compassion, confidence, and resilience will make life a lot more enjoyable! So join me as we DANCE IN THE DISCOMFORT ZONE! We’ll explore new ideas, learn how to build our confidence, courage, and resilience, and laugh a little too because life is serious enough. We need a little cha-cha and a little haha every once in a while! Welcome to the Discomfort Zone with Anne Bonney!
