Managing Yourself and Your Career with Kindness
“Waste no more time arguing about what a good (wo)man should be. Be one." — Marcus Aurelius
In business and in life we are selfish by nature – buy my stuff or service, invite me, promote me, refer me….like me. We spend a great deal of time learning to ask for what we want or do we? But once we have found how to put ourselves first what’s next in wisdom and learning for each of us? Kindness. Kindness can be frankness, harshness, and putting yourself second long enough to really hear from those who enable your success.
Celia Morant and Alie Berggren of Berggren & Morant Consulting LLC are hosting a discussion that will ground you and further enable you to think fast on your feet and serve yourself by playing the long game.
Learn to consistently put your customers and sphere of influence before yourself – with mindfulness. If you act in kindness, the universe will repay in kind. Doing the right thing for its own sake is never enough for any of us in the beginning but what we all achieve with wisdom.
