Who Knew NPR Had a Kindness Podcast?
I am so excited to introduce you to Nicole J. Phillips, host of the NPR Kindness Podcast. It may be one of podcasting's best kept secrets. Nicole has interviewed well over 150 people like you and me who have thought of ways to be kind, some to neighbors, some in their community, and some around the world.
Nicole and I have co-authored Workplace Positivity Guide and Workbook. I have written a lot about the 30 micro-actions we have in the book. Today, I want to introduce you to Nicole herself. We recently did this live broadcast where she shared the act of kindness that set her on her path and changed her life.
How to get started with positivity in your organization
A couple years ago, Nicole and I turned our passions and interests in kindness toward companies and organizations. We combed through hundreds of suggestions and best practices we have received and developed during our speaking and coaching careers. We settled on 30 micro-actions of kindness any of us can do. These are actions so small they will fit into any busy manager or supervisor’s schedule. Some are self-reflective, some have instant impact on others and some are just fun. We collected them along with stories and data to support them. Then, we created personal worksheets for each micro-action. We took all of that and put it into an oversized guide and workbook called Workplace Positivity.
Nicole and I devote much of our time to training management teams and leaders to eliminate negativity by personally practicing some of these micro-actions of kindness. These aren’t sleepy mandatory sessions. We bring the vibrant joy that comes with sharing kindness. We have more stories, more insights, and more micro-actions than any company, organization, or team can possibly use.
Every story, insight and action we share with your team will multiply until you are sharing and overflowing with your own.
Either of us, or both of us, will be happy to work with you to create a customized training and presentation for you weekly staff meeting, quarterly training event, or annual conference. We have presentations from an hour to multiple days.
Now it’s your turn.
In the comments, tell me your #1 takeaway from this post and how you plan to use it in your workplace?
