I feel your pain

Busy professionals like us constantly deal with stress and overwhelm, which impact our wellbeing as we work in a changing and uncertain world. I know — I’ve been there. We’re not just trying to get our work done; we’re aiming to work with purpose, create positive impact, and drive revenue. In doing so, we’re also looking for meaning and purpose from work, as well as career progression. However, work today often causes overwhelm, poor work-life balance and burnout, making our overall lives suffer as well.

Work pain impacts you in so many ways
Work challenges not only affect our health and personal lives but also stifle our creativity, joy, and ability to perform optimally at work. It’s all too easy to find ourselves in a loop of constant pressure and exhaustion, which leads to reduced performance, effectiveness, and job satisfaction. These challenges can make work miserable, hinder our career progression, and diminish the positive impact we could otherwise make in our roles. All of this can make the rest of our lives miserable too.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”2476″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

I created #WorkKind as the answer we need

As the managing director of a multi-million revenue business, I found myself increasingly at odds with the values and working methods of my holding company. The arguments over how to treat people so they worked hard and thrived, the disagreements over the workplace culture I’d helped shape, the conflicts, and the unrealistic demands grew to the point where I was waking up every weekday and wishing I hadn’t. Burnout consumed me, and I felt adrift in both work and life. However, I firmly believed that work should bring fulfilment, joy, and a sense of accomplishment for me and everyone I had the privilege of leading. It was clear that there had to be a better way.

In the face of these challenges, I discovered that kindness held the key. It started with simple acts of self-kindness, such as meditation and journaling. Gradually, I reclaimed my life, thriving both personally and professionally. I left the company. And thrived. Now, I embrace kindness every day, living and working aboard my houseboat, Aloha, surrounded by inspiring individuals just like yourself.

I confronted the pain of a toxic job by showing myself kindness. I learned to #WorkKind, and together, that’s precisely what we aim to do. Drawing upon my Psychology BSc, coaching training, corporate and startup experiences, as well as insights from writing The Kindness Code book, I have crafted the transformative #WorkKind Course. I hope to see you on it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

We live what we value…

This is who we are and what we stand for individually and collectively. Our values are the compass and litmus test for every choice we make.

…and that includes where we work.

Aloha

The Hawaiian greeting “Sharing the joy of the present moment.”

We’re often asked where we work.

One answer is everywhere: the work we do is truly global.

And the other answer is this beauty: Aloha, Magnus’s home/office. Living and working on the tranquility of the water truly is for me #WorKind.

Look out for us in the rivers and canals around London. And why not pop in for a coffee?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_single_image image=”2863″ img_size=”large” alignment=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row el_id=”magnus”][vc_column][ultimate_spacer height=”60″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1666105677101{margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;}”]
