Common Good Vermont is delighted to announce North Carolina’s Center for Nonprofits’ virtual event. Please contact [email protected] with any questions.

In 2023, 30% of employees in the U.S. reported being burned out “very often” or “always” at work. Quiet quitting is on the rise. We need engaged leaders who know how to balance head with heart.

Being a Kind Boss isn’t about playing nice or not hurting feelings. Kindness is “having, showing or proceeding from benevolence.” Nice is a feeling. Kindness is an action. Kindness is collaborating with others to make the working world less awful.

In this webinar, author and creative agency owner Dawn Crawford will share entertaining stories of leadership gone wrong and tips and inspiration to put kindness into practice, including:

  • Why kindness is critical for leadership
  • How critical feedback hurts your team
  • What it takes to become a Kind Boss
  • Get fired up for action, collaboration, and kindness that will help you develop a team that produces better results more efficiently and save their sanity.

Registration Instruction: Please 1) select the “All Others” registration choice ($30) in the dropdown and 2) type “CGV” in the “How did you hear about this event?” box on the web form.
