Today our world seems like it is upside down. Our news and social medical feeds reinforce this every day. Yet, I see a call for kindness, to treat others how we want to be treated and to help each other in times of trouble. This is a time for all of us to be kind!
I shared this message a few months ago, but it bears repeating today, so I am resharing it.
I was talking to my nephew over the weekend. He is a general manager at a restaurant in Philadelphia. He is responsible for hiring staff and overseeing the restaurant’s day-to-day operations as part of his role. We were talking about how hard it is to hire and retain staff. As we talked, I asked him what trait he looks for in a person that lets him know the person would be a good hire. His response was Kindness. He said that as he interviews a person, he looks for examples of Kindness as that is the one thing he can’t teach someone.
Being kind is a responsibility we all have every day to all we encounter!
So Be Kind!
