Linda spoke for my CEO leadership group. They LOVED her! Linda is a highly skilled speaker and consultant. Her message on the importance of including acts of kindness within your day to day activities is applicable to all people at all stages of life. Not only will incorporating small acts of kindness transform your individual interactions with others, it will also enrich the culture of your workplace. The CEO’s said they took away ideas that could be implemented in their companies to enrich their culture of kindness.

Linda, it was wonderful to have you at our 2018 WRC-ALCA Conference. You had a great impact on the membership. I heard several references throughout the conference to “kindness” and “mitzvahs”. In fact, the final presentation, which was a panel of Aging Life Care Managers discussing the next steps to grow our profession, reminded everyone to practice kindness with employees and reminded everyone about points with your “kick-off” session. Thank you for being a “Kindness Super-Hero”!
President, Western Region Aging Life Care Association

Her stories are widely applicable, and make a convincing argument for maintaining one’s own emotional and spiritual health vital to supporting those we serve.

Format: 30-90 Minute Keynote
This program is perfect for:
- non profit organizations
In this interactive keynote, Cohen 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.
Cohen 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. Cohen will enlist the audience to expand 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.
