Random Acts of Kindness in the Workplace


This lunchtime seminar is offered by the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program (FSAP) for those interested in understanding the positive impact of kindness. Research shows that leaders and co-workers who demonstrate kindness and compassion, however small, but aimed at easing pain, inspire others to act in a similar fashion. These acts strengthen team cohesion and their sense of belonging while fostering loyalty. Furthermore, being kind can make a real difference to the well-being and health of individuals who offer it and receive it. This seminar will review creative ways participants may engage in acts of workplace kindness and will be facilitated by a UM FSAP consultant. FSAP Health and Wellness seminars are offered as part of the University of Miami’s Well ’Canes Program.

Coral Gables campus: Tuesday, April 1, from noon to 1 p.m. at the McKnight Building, second-floor training room

RSMAS campus: Wednesday, April 2, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Library Media Room

Miller Medical School campus: Thursday, April 3, from noon to 1 p.m. in Dominion Parking Garage, room 155
