Barbara Vercruysse guides entrepreneurs and corporate leaders to move through life with more fulfillment, ease, leadership, and kindness.
Kindness goes a long way. Although kindness has been perceived as a weakness in a business environment, many scientific studies have revealed the exact opposite for a long time. You are recognized as a leader when you demonstrate kindness, even when you could have chosen to lead with a hard heart, especially if you are an entrepreneur, a corporate leader, or an organization.
Your employees are more efficient when you guide the day-to-day activities with warmth and thoughtfulness. Some people are born with a natural ability to be kind. Although no one chooses to be chilly, many people appear to be because they are convinced that a professional environment requires that attitude.
Fortunately, Barbara Vercruysse is on hand to guide such individuals. This Global Kindness Advocate, mentor, personal coach, business coach, thought leader and public speaker, is on a mission to offer individuals and organizations tools and insights to lead with kindness and compassion.
