The story behind Work Kind™

Cole Baker-Bagwell

Some would say a Wall Street conference room is one of the most unlikely places on Earth to be inspired by kindness. But for me, it’s a testament to the magic we can realize by intentionally architecting spaces for one other to slow down, unfold, connect and work with shared purpose.

30 or so people, who were ordered to work together, shuffled into the room. There was no talking or eye contact. Instead, they did what was safe and opened their laptops to catch up on email, social media or to play Angry Birds. Quietly sequestered, their only goal was to get to the end of those hours and survive.

We’d come together to solve a series of complex problems in environments that managed $50 billion in financial trading every day. Their job was to keep those technical environments on the rails. Mine was to lead them to the right place.

At the start of the meeting, I made a choice. Instead of the usual introductions and agenda, I asked everyone to turn off their laptops and phones. We took a few deep breaths. Then, I said, “My intention is to leave you better. If you can agree to do the same, we will accomplish amazing things here today. We will fill these whiteboards with our best ideas, and we will leave here knowing exactly what to do.”

They hadn’t seen that coming. After the confusion wore off, the whole vibe shifted. Heads nodded. A few people even smiled. That room came alive with the sound of smart voices sharing ideas, debating, agreeing- collaborating. Everyone gave their best. When we left the conference room that day, the whiteboards were filled, we all knew what to do next. We agreed to work kind and because we did, we left each other better.

Working Kind. I’d been doing it all my corporate and startup career but I had simply never called it that. I’ve always believed that work is about showing up with your uniqueness, creating great work, and making a positive impact. Yet, for too long in my career and for the people around me, work simply wasn’t like that. Everyone I knew in my advertising and marketing career were stressed, anxious and overwhelmed most of the time. The companies I worked in felt they were battling just to stand still. Scarcity, struggling to grow, and unhappiness seemed to be the way work is.

Work Kind™ is nothing less than a revolution at work. It is working in ways that give us joy, meaning and self expression. It is thriving, laughing and growing in our teams. And it is every organisation making its unique positive impact on the world.

Yes, Work Kind™ is a community and a course. More importantly — it is a way of life.
