About Making Kindness Our Business
In today’s fast-paced and highly competitive business landscape, kindness appears to be irrelevant. It can almost be seen as a hindrance that slows us down and dulls our competitive edge. That is what some may think. But Dr Wan would like to suggest that kindness is good for business and is more relevant than we think.

Many behavioral studies have shown that practicing acts of kindness has a positive effect on a person’s happiness, satisfaction in relationships, and even one’s physical and mental health.

Here’s the science. When we are kind to others, our brains “reward” us by releasing a mixture of chemicals, including dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin, which makes us feel good. In fact, it has been found that doing a kind act not only bestows a sense of satisfaction on the receiver, but also on the one who performed the act, and all those who witnessed it.

But what does that have to do with achieving business objectives? What is the benefit to us as employers and employees who practice kindness and graciousness in the workplace? Is it simply something that is “good to have” but not essential, or deemed unimportant, compared to the need to scale up our performance and increase the bottom-line?
