In this hectic world, kindness can go a long way.
Common courtesies like “please” or “thank you” and a genuine interest in others can be as contagious as COVID, but without all the negative side effects. When we conduct ourselves and our business with kindness, we tend to feel better, both physically and mentally. And our behavior becomes infectious; people often pass it on.
I’d like to suggest we incorporate kindness in our communications. The next time you struggle to write something like an e-blast, speech or fundraising letter, think about being kind with yourself and your audience. Would a jog in place get your juices flowing? Will your words be received in the way you hope? If not, how do you demonstrate to your audience that you care?
Let’s talk if you’re interested in discussing ways to communicate with kindness.
