70. 100 Acts of Love | Kim Hamer (Final S3)

• 79 min

**Last episode of Season3!** On April 16, 2009, Kim Hamer watched her 44-yr-old husband take his last breath. During his illness and after his death, she was amazed by the helpful ways their coworkers, bosses, friends, and family supported them. Kim started calling their kind actions "acts of love".   After the death of her husband, Kim, an HR leader, noticed how little guidance leaders received when navigating cancer, health crisis, or death on their team. She knew their lack of knowledge negatively affected morale, employee engagement, and productivity. She set out to change that. Combining her personal experience with her professional knowledge and leadership skills, Kim launched her business to support leaders and coworkers when cancer (or any health crisis) affects a team member.   Kim Hamer is the author of 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss, an easy-to-read book filled with 100 practical, quick, and effective ways to support a friend or coworker. She’s also an HR leader and speaker who lives in Los Angeles where she tries not to bother her relatively well-behaved college-aged children.   In this episode, we chat about the following: Things to consider when you are suddenly thrust into the role of caregiver for someone seriously ill Great tips on navigating your work scene Seriously good examples of Acts of Love to support others in their time of need #1 phrase of what NOT to say - and why PLUS get access to your very own pdf version of 5 Phrases of What Not to Say (link below)   Quote: "Every single time someone did something, it was like, I'm doing this, cuz I love you." ~ Kim Hamer     Resources:   Kim's links: 5 Things Not to Say download: Get your copy of 100 Acts of Love: Website: IG:       Follow me on: Instagram: Facebook: Website:   Loved this episode?
