Today’s guests are Emma Lloyd and Joanna Suvarna. Emma is the Head of Experience at MB People and the Global Facilitator, Director, Coach and Director at Create the Ripple Ltd. Joanna is a voluntary Ambassador for BulliesOut, a voluntary Learning Community Champion at CIPD, and the Founder of the ‘Be The Ripple’ movement. Dubbed ‘Kindness Champions’ by Kevin Monroe, they both embody the spirit of compassion and possess a passion for making a difference through other people.
This week’s theme is kindness, and why we need it. Kindness is bigger than just being kind; it involves being your authentic self, warmth, depth, and empathy. Kindness is not a soft skill. Though society sees kindness as a weakness, it requires immense strength.
You’ll hear them and Kevin Monroe discuss:
- What kindness means to them.
- Instances where they were recipients of kind acts.
- Why we should be kinder to ourselves.
- The correlation between kindness and gratitude.
- Overcoming your negativity bias.
