Kindness Movement

Moving from BAU to Business As Us

"Hurt people hurt people. That's how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation. Break the chain today. Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion, cruetly with kindness. Greet grimaces with smiles. Forgive and forget about finding fault. Love is the weapon of the future."
(Yehuda Berg)

Join me in the Kindness revolution - focused on collaboration, co-creation and compassion.

"Future Intelligence" - nurturing your personalised, sustainable CPU.

Adopting a systems-based approach, I've adopted a framework for myself that draws upon Applied Psychology, Conscious Leadership, Non-Violent Communication and Authentic Relating -- to build my own personal "CPU" (central processing unit).

It's iterative in nature, acknowledging that nothing exists in silo, change is a constant & all work must begin with inner work.

The core to what makes us human:

Communication (Effective + Empathic)

Purpose (Inner Drive)

Unity (Belonging)
