In my interview with Morgane Michael, host and producer of Kindsight 101, we discuss why kindness gets a bad rap; the research that shows how kindness and compassion actually increase creativity and productivity; how Pixar and Disney are embracing kindness practices in their work cultures without lowering their standards; how to counter the ‘live or die’ mentality of perfectionism and achievement; the contagious impact of kindness, affecting our physical and mental wellness as well as the dominant culture; how social media can be damaging, leading to depression and anxiety; how we can find ways to be more ‘real’ and risk being more authentic and vulnerable in our public personas; and why play is the antidote to perfectionism.
