Quote: “Kindness fills our lives with depth, meaning and love. Most of all, I believe that kindness is the most powerful force available to us to positively change the world.” Shola Richards
“No act of kindness no matter how small is ever wasted.” Aesop. “Kindness is a gift everyone can afford to give.” Unknown. There are so many inspirational quotes about kindness, but how many of us actually practice it every day and make it part of our business plan? On this episode of The Wealthy Speaker Show, we are thrilled to welcome Shola Richards to talk about how picking a lane of kindness and civility has helped his business grow by leaps and bounds!
Shola Richards is a best-selling author, keynote speaker, suicide survivor, and workplace civility expert (nicknamed Brother Teresa) whose mission is to change the world based on how we treat each other at work. His success as the top regional performer had been numbed by a culture of incessant workplace bullying. That’s when it all changed…
Highlights you won’t want to miss:
- How Brand Camp changed everything. [2:00]
- Civility needs to start at the top. [6:30]

- Seeing more diversity on the stage. [16:00]
- It pays to invest in yourself. [20:00]

Exhausted from the drama, with an unrecognizable version of himself at the wheel, Shola intentionally swerved off the interstate in an attempt to take his life. But in that half-second, his reflexes responded, and he yanked the wheel away from disaster. As he clipped the guardrail on I 405, something changed…HE UNCOVERED A POWER WITHIN HIMSELF…a burning desire to reverse a trend that happens daily to sixty-five million people in this country alone. This catalyst has since become Go Together™ Movement – a transformational roadmap of mindset, behaviors, and tools that transform workplace cultures and drive results.
