“Kindness is a language which the deaf hear and the blind can see” – Mark Twain

We have been “walking” into a lot of virtual meeting rooms as of late and one thing that shifts a Zoom or Microsoft Teams meeting is a welcoming smile that serves a s a natural icebreaker that conveys friendliness and generosity. Considering you might have resisted attending yet another virtual meeting, this small act of kindness changes the trajectory of your day and possibly the outcome of the meeting.

The above scenario is just an example of the powerful combination of kindness and your presence. Mark Twain said it well, kindness has a very big megaphone and is definitely a universal language that everyone can understand. So, show up at virtual meeting with our video ON, a friendly smile and generous greeting to your host and fellow participants.

We also suspect that this quality will serve you well in the process of attaining your goals especially when you find yourself collaborating with others. Our top tip for collaborating with others, is to be kind to yourself and to others because it will enhance the quality of your collective effort. People will always remember how you made them feel, so “why not leave them with something positive” to say about your presence and organization.

Here are some other ways to spread kindness in the workplace this week.
