Random Thought of the Week

I’ll keep this week’s random thought short and sweet: be kind—it’s more important than you think it is.

Not only be kind but also model kindness on your team too.

But how do you do that? I mean, how do you promote generosity and kindness in your team? Let’s see.

First, start with yourself: Take the lead. Give compliments to your teammates.

Sometimes, people are blunt and up-front. Yet, that does not mean they have bad intentions or ulterior motives. They likely want the team’s success as much as anyone else. Be available, helpful, and present for them.

Teams are cauldrons of bubbling emotions, and decisions are made by carefully considering everyone’s feelings—along with other things.

Never assume malice. People can have different ways to communicate. People come from different cultural norms, and backgrounds. Reaching consensus is complicated with two people already; it gets more complex as the number increases. Don’t make it even harder.

Kindness is contagious: Small gestures can have a big impact.
