Jon Kabat-Zinn, Master of Mindfulness, says, “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf.” We reckon that’s a pretty cool way to think about work.
You’ll spend roughly 11 whole years working during your lifetime. ‘Waves’ like miscommunication, deadlines, re-orgs, competing interests, overwhelming workloads, organisational changes, crappy bosses (and still more) will roll in. They’ll turn into big swells that will ripple across the rest of your world.
The difference between surviving and thriving at work is learning how to surf.
Learn how to live better, be healthier and work with soul.
The #WorkKind community is a weekly, good vibes, virtual, global gathering of people just like you, who want to live better and be healthier by learning how to surf the ‘waves’ of work with more skill.
You’ll learn how to live mindfully to boost your overall wellbeing. You’ll develop your kindness competency to help you meet the ‘waves’ of life and work with more intention, clarity and less stress.
The live, weekly facilitated sessions will help you develop a practical mindfulness practice, kind language and practices that will help you be more well in life and as you work.
The community meets for one hour every Tuesday, for 46 weeks.
Save your spot. The 2022-2023 learning cohort kicks off October 25th.
Bring yourself. Bring your team.
No titles. No last names. Just people working with soul.

The story behind #WorkKind
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, #WorkKind is a community. More importantly — it is a way of life.
