HumanKIND: The art of being both

Since the beginning of time, no human being has ever found immunity from suffering. And despite being a universal experience, pain, which can arrive in various forms, will always come to us in a deeply personal way. For many, relationship struggles, health concerns or work related strain can cause emotional turmoil. Coupled with the demands of technology, financial issues and other daily stressors, the result is unprecedented levels of anxiety and fearful thinking.

Living under such conditions, it's no wonder we are experiencing a deficiency in positive emotions. When life beats us down, practicing kindness, compassion and gratitude can seem nearly impossible. And the stark reality is this; without a spirit of resiliency and the tools to manage our emotional state, an unkind attitude towards ourselves and others will often be the result.

By observing any challenge from the hearts perspective, however, we gain incredible wisdom, while also having a positive effect on those around us. From this vantage point, our difficulties are not only the precursor to developing integrity and strength, but they can also help us to become a kinder, more sensitive human being.

PART ONE: Working through challenges with grace

In this first segment, you will learn how disappointments are opportunities in disguise; each one leading you toward a meaningful existance. As Michael explains, "Personal responsibility is your birthright. Life is not happening to you, but rather, you are happening to life. You can respond from the heart . . . or react with your head. Become virtuous or remain a victim. The choice is always yours."

PART TWO: Finding compassion for difficult people

We all know them - mean spirited, dramatic and egocentric people. But perhaps it's time to view these individuals in a more sympathetic light - one where we recognize that their unkind behavior is never about you, but rather, a manifestation of their own suffering. From this place, you will understand that there are no inherently "bad people," only hurting ones. Or as the adage goes, hurt people, hurt people.

PART THREE: Kindness as an intention

Finally, you will discover the extraordinary benefits kindness can offer within your day-to-day interactions. As you learn to replace negative thinking patterns of judgment and fear with thoughts of acceptance, empathy, compassion and even forgiveness, a positive new energy will develop within all of your relationships, especially the one with yourself.

Illuminating, uplifting and inspiring, this unforgettable lecture will show you a proven philosophy for a better way of life . . . and for creating a better world.

    KindnessAssociates: The new model for customer service

True success lies not in brilliant marketing campaigns, cutting edge technology or the depth of your advertising budget. Ensuring business longevity all comes down to the way you make people feel. Gratitude, attentiveness, empathy and kindness are no longer luxuries, but rather, necessities to both customer and employee retention. Those who embrace such heart-centered practices will survive and thrive in any economy, while those who do not will be on the brink of extinction. Simply stated, it is the everyday acts of kindness that make the greatest difference and ultimately, will ensure the strength of an organization or company.

Throughout this workshop, Michael shares how adopting kindness as a business model creates unity, productivity, trust, and employee dedication. He will introduce universal techniques that can be applied to any environment to inspire positive actions, all while building a kinder future for you and your company. Topics discussed include:

- Reducing stress and anxiety

- Creating a kinder work environment

- How to peacefully deal with difficult people

- Developing positive communication skills

- Personal and professional development

- Finding purpose and meaning in your work
