A happy birthday

I was on the train into Victoria Station and as we pulled into the station, the driver did the usual announcements and then said that it was his co-driver’s birthday and when we were passing the cab, we might like to say Happy Birthday to her. As we walked passed the cab, that is exactly […]

How to ace walking meetings

Today marks the start of Mental Health Awareness Week 2022. The theme this year is loneliness and the Mental Health Foundation are encouraging people to build meaningful connections. One way to encourage connection building is to get out for a walk together. I love taking a walk round the beautiful lake in this photo, often […]

Send thanks to health heroes

Did you know that if you’ve experienced kindness in a health setting in the UK, you can use Tap Thank UK to send them thanks?

Towards the end of last year I heard Danbee Shin speak at a conference about the ways she welcomes her clients into her business with kindness. I reached out […]

Authenticity in communication

Many years ago the large charity I worked for was launching a particular employee initiative. I wanted to contact other organisations who had done something similar. My plan was to ask for their advice and learning about the communications. I was in a junior role and felt inexperienced, so I asked a more senior colleague […]

Monthly gifts

“A friend of mine is giving someone a gift every month this year – this month it was me for being a good friend!” I love this idea! Congratulations and thank you to the anonymous person who shared this story with me. How can you make sure you’re spreading kindness regularly?

Small kindness, big community

“I love finding these painted rocks, there’s a Facebook group for them in Llantwit because they’re such a big thing. Everyone’s excited to find them.” How beautiful to have a whole community excited and connected by something as small as painted rocks. No kindness is too small and this story from Caz proves the power […]

How do you show your employees that you value them?

People who feel valued will put more effort in and remain loyal to your business. How will you show your employees that you […]
