If kindness is a social currency, then it is not evenly distributed between us all: we tend to spend it, invest it, hold it, within a network of broader social ties. We tend to be more kind to those who we know, or perhaps need.
Whilst Organisations often talk about having a ‘Fair’ culture, a ‘Kind’ one is less often mentioned. Perhaps we have a more intrinsic understanding of what ‘fair’ means, in absolute terms, whilst kindness is more relative?
Kindness is felt in it’s impact, and through the smallest of words, or actions. Quiet Leaders are not necessarily more kind than others, but perhaps they are mindful of where they spend it, and how.
