The 14th-century definition of kindness is noble deeds and courtesy. In yoga, kindness means ahimsa, to do no harm. To today’s guest on “The Customer Experience Podcast,” Cole Baker-Bagwell, kindness is something that marries intention and compassion and mind and heart.
Her goal is to help people in business realize and implement kindness as a core competency.
Not only is kindness important on a human level, but it can become a core value for any company. From product development to internal team alignment, kindness as a starting point for business practice can utterly change the customer experience.
We talk about how most of our decisions, both business and personal, are made subconsciously. And if we can train kindness into a habit for ourselves and our teams, we will attain a new and lasting perspective on what matters in business and life.
Throughout our conversation, Cole shares insights into…
• What defines kindness
• What references of kindness relate to the customer experience
• How to become aware of ego, agenda, and bias — and tame them
• Why and how kindness connects people
• How the pandemic made companies kinder (based on Cole’s kindness survey results)
