“When you lead with kindness, people feel that energy.”
— Amy Keon
“You don’t have to be the loudest person to inspire others to be kind,” says Amy Keon, pediatric registered nurse, empath, and my special guest for this episode. Her Facebook community, Share Kindness Loudly, is dedicated to recognizing and celebrating everyday acts of kindness by everyday people.
Amy believes that you don’t need to change yourself or take on extroverted traits in order to inspire people — you can do it in your own quiet, authentic, introverted way!
Leading with kindness uplifts and fuels those around us. As Amy explains, to lead with kindness is to spread joy, share awareness, learn from each other, not be judgmental, and be generous with our time. Workplaces are transformed when led by leaders who model generosity and empathy. By leading with kindness, we build morale and loyalty in our teams, inspire them to work at their best, and create a culture of empathy.
But when leading with kindness, it’s also important to extend that kindness to yourself. Self care is not selfish at all — you can’t take care of others properly unless you take care of yourself! By protecting your energy and space, and taking the time to replenish yourself, you’ll be able to maximize your positive impact without wearing yourself down!
