Kindness | A Hallmark of Personal Branding

One smiling figurine giving a flower to another

When preparing your personal brand, you pay attention to all sorts of things that will make sure that you are conveying the right message about who you are and what you are about.

During this process, have your given much thought to kindness?


Yes, kindness. I have talked before about generosity as a component of your personal brand. Kindness is a part of this because it is the way in which you are generous; it brings an authenticity to your generosity. Complementing the efforts of someone else is more than a means to an end when done with kindness. Folks know you are the real deal when you are not only generous, but kind.

The perfect opportunity is coming up to show your kindness!  On Sunday, April 3, there will be a #Kindness Party on Twitter! Folks will not only be tweeting quotes of kindness, but they will also be sharing stories of kindness about people in their lives who embody this hallmark of personal branding.

I am excited to be a co-facilitator of this year’s #Kindness Party on Twitter! It’s an honor to be aligned with these fine folks in this capacity:
