Kindness Pays Big Benefits in The Workplace
By Patti Martin Bartsche, Kates-Boylston Publications
How do you create a culture of kindness in the workplace? In today’s episode, Linda Cohen talks about the power of doing intentional acts of kindness and the ripple effect that can transform your life and your business.
After her father died, Linda started a 1,000-Mitzvah (act of kindness) project in his memory. Five years later, she translated her project into how it affects businesses and organizations and how leaders can bring kindness in the workplace.
Transform Your Workplace
A hard-hitting pandemic spurred an initial, unexpected rise in kindness. But before long, we settled back into our old ways. Could your business use a lesson in ramping up kindness? In this episode, Linda Cohen brings kindness back to the forefront of the workplace conversation. Listen in as Cohen drives home the idea that kindness affects everyone and everything it touches, even a business’s bottom line.
Is kindness a mindset, culture, or capability? What is the cost of empowering your employees to be kind to their co-workers, customers, and themselves? We start our conversation by discussing how Linda started her kindness movement by writing her first book, 1,000 Mitzvahs: How Small Acts of Kindness Can Heal, Inspire, and Change Your Life, as a project to honor her father. Linda discusses the concept of an “economy of kindness,” and how kindness is a soft skill that businesses rarely emphasize. Yet, the ROI of kindness in your business is undeniable.

What is your definition of kindness? Why does kindness in the workplace matter? In this interview with Patti Martin Barsche, Linda Cohen discusses the importance of kindness in the workplace and the impact the pandemic has had on its presence.
Linda explains, “During the pandemic, communication has been one of the biggest practices of kindness in the workplace. In the beginning, it was the organization communicating protocols and the daily or weekly changes occurring as the pandemic evolved. Now I believe it must be two-way communication.” It’s important for leaders. to create and open those opportunities. If “What do you need right now?” or “How can we support you?” is never asked, possible solutions from their perspective will never be known.
In this interview, you’ll find the Four Key Traits of Elevated Communication, strategies for managers to improve employee engagement, and the costs kindness can save companies from.
