A collection of posts that show how we are part of a bigger #teamkind when we act with kindness. These stories tell us about the positive things that people do to be kind to others.

Friends help figure out Sunday busses.

“At the weekend I was trying to work out bus travel on a Sunday in Swansea so asked some friends in a WhatsApp group I’m in. They then looked up the buses for me and even rang me with lots of really helpful info which meant I could then figure out the journey.” What a […]

A patio with a pair of wellies, a long plastic planter, and a smaller round green pot on it. The wellies have compost in them and the words "carrots" typed on them. In the far end of the long planter are some small potato plants, the opposite side are two garlic plants. On the compost is text reading "potatoes, kale and carrots, garlic." On the compost of the small round pot text reads "broccoli.”

Gardening tips and encouragement from internet strangers.

“I’m learning to garden this year having had the gift of killing every plant I even walk past before! I posted a photo of my current attempts on Mastodon and got so many really helpful tips and lots of encouragement. It feels quite overwhelming to start growing food from nothing with no real knowledge, apart

a view of Aberthaw nature reserve. In the foreground is an area of long grasses. Beyond that there is a large lake with an island in the middle on which a swam is sitting. Beyond the lake is an area of trees, bushes and grass, with a stone building with a large chimney in the middle of it which is all getting overtaken my nature. The sky is filled with soft white clouds which make it look a greyish blue.

Wild Britain inspires kindness to nature

Have you seen Countryfile’s Wild Britain project – it’s full of people doing acts of kindness for nature! Near me there are 2169 acts of kindness to nature happening, and near our social media manager there are 1656. That’s a lot of kindness! Get involved yourself or use it as another place to find kindness

Self kindness is… acceptance.

“I was kind to myself by accepting that my plan for the day doesn’t have to happen. Technology decided to rebel and I had intended to get a lot done. I was frustrated for a bit. Then accepted it as a gift to work offline that day. I’m am noticing that being kind to myself

She smiles broadly and points to a sign which reads “helpful department here” behind her. Joshua is a man with short strawberry blonde hair and a goatee wearing a blue top and black rimmed glasses.

Team work makes the Helpful Department work!

“I’m going to be out of town next week, so first thing this morning, I sat down with Joshua Green to make sure that the people that I coach will know that they will be able to reach out to Josh while I am away…and Josh will be able to plan proactively and arrange his

White text on the image reads, "We'll miss you Dee!"]

What if … change is handled with kindness?

I first spotted this month’s guest, Dee Russell, taking about change on LinkedIn and I was delighted when they agreed to share their experience and tips with us. Change is often difficult but it can be a very different experience for all concerned when it is handled with kindness. I’ve led teams through organisational change

A large table filled with books. On the front is a large piece of paper with “book swap” in decorative lettering on it

Work book swap embeds kindness in culture.

“My work has a book swap table where people can leave books they’ve read or don’t want and anyone can take books home from it.” Initiatives like this are such a great way to bring more kindness to the workplace. What does your workplace do? More kindness at work: Regular customer gifts money to staff

Man offers table in busy pub.

What small act of kindness have you noticed this week? Here’s one of mine ⬇️ Tris and I popped into our local pub on a Friday evening, for an end of week drink. It was quite busy and there didn’t seem to be any free seats. Then a man came over and offered us his
