Welcome to Episode 11
In this podcast episode I’m joined by Anna Sheppard.
Anna is the founder and CEO of Bambuddha Group, An ALL INCLUSIVE peer to peer leadership development network. Anna has added value to hundreds of companies and inspirational leaders by showing them how to ‘work kinder.’
She is also the founder of several other major initiatives, including The Corporate Kindness Project, which is an Australian based research study focusing on the business benefits of working kind, the first white paper, was released in 2019 and is now a podcast show ‘Project Good Boss’ which is launching soon.
I first met Anna at The Gamechangers Gathering, which is an annual event founded by Bambuddha Group and brings together thought leaders and social impact experts dedicated to creating change.
Bambuddha Group hosts sustainable leadership keynote events every two months and provides coaching and training built to encourage members to collaborate, educate, evaluate and celebrate sustainable development.
Our Small Business chat includes some of the following highlights:
Working Hard & Working Kind
The Importance Of Connection
Kindness In Business
Music – A Powerful Tool
“There’s a lot of nervousness and anxiety in the world at the moment. So what we need more than anything is compassion and kindness.
There are leaders feeling a little bit like their knees are knocking and they’re a little wobbly but still showing up for themselves and for others.
We’re here to empower these leaders. It’s about a community where those leaders can come and be safe, where they can talk about what’s going on.
I think a lot of time in executive positions, business owners and operators get stuck between a rock and a hard place. You don’t know who to go and you don’t know who to trust. You might have a board to report to or a team that want you to lead with integrity and passion and positivity and having a space that you can come to is important.”
