We are Relevant
Fostering Kindness in a Changing World
Challenging times create room for new opportunities to emerge. The changes COVID-19 brought to our daily-living – stretching from social isolation to working from home while multitasking – all brought salience to the fact that the kind relationships we build with each other are a true source for comfort, sanity, and meaning in our lives.
But how can we easily foster kind-relationships?
How can we turn benevolence into something we are not only attracted to but also actively create?
And how progress and technology are related to all of these?
John Donne taught us that no man is an island, Mark Zuckerberg turned us into a social network – the world is definitely not the same, however, our basic emotional needs are similar. This lecture examines the position we as individuals take within our social-surrounding, how it changes in the face of progress and technology, and what kind of new opportunities to foster beneficial relationships emerge especially now.
The Fostering Kindness lecture will offer a different way to understand interpersonal encounters and will offer practical tools to create beneficial interactions (at your work/home) regardless of your physical distance from each other. These tools can help spread kindness around you, in a way that enhances yours and others personal growth and help you achieve goals in the workplace.
