Why Kindness Matters Today in Schools and Corporations
Steffi has created interactive presentations for both schools and corporations because numerous scientific studies show that acts of kindness result in significant health benefits, both physical and mental, for both young kids and older adults.
*Some of the Kindness Materials (project and classroom ideas and videos) used in my school presentations are provided free of charge courtesy of the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation, www.randomactsofkindness.org.
For schools, there is an interactive workshop for classes from JK to Grade 8 that includes an pro-active and positive monthly curriculum emphasizing 3 kind acts a week as studies show that impacts the pro-social values of a classroom.
Recent Testimonial from Principal Margaret Napier of Central Public School:
"Dear Ivy and Steffi,
I would like to thank you so much for coming to Central Public School and spreading kindness throughout the halls of our school and providing meaningful tasks with follow up activities for our students. The workshops were fantastic, engaging and had the students from Kindergarten to Grade 6 actively participating. From the work that you have done at Central, we have had many student lead various initiatives. A group of grade 5 students have created a Kindness Club and are spreading acts of Kindness not only within our school but within our community. Again, thanks for your dedication, energy and commitment to all kids."
For corporations, there is a presentation on why kindness matters for business and employees, and steffi works with companies to created tailored programs that boost morale and employee engagement. As a former senior leader in healthcare, Steffi knows the importance of a leadership vision that is caring, empowering and inclusive and believes emphasizing this character trait can make an impact on the work atmosphere and create a more supportive team work atmosphere that, ultimately, benefits the bottom line.
