Harness the hidden power of kindness.

Kindness isn’t merely about getting along with people and being nice. It’s a game changer in business, the door-opener to opportunity, and the key to authenticity and confidence. It’s a superpower that can be honed through an intentional lifestyle of kindness and is especially important in these divisive times.

Can something as simple as kindness really be the answer?

Through years of developing her own kindness practices and studying those of others, Good Morning America correspondent and anchor Adrienne Bankert has experienced firsthand the unbeatable power of kindness and witnessed its transformative impact on others.

Adjusting our perspective from being closed off and self-centered to a mindset of kindness ripples into a staggering amount of personal fulfillment and growth. No matter our age or ethnicity, where we come from, or how much money we make, every one of us can be kind. Every one of us can be a change agent.

Your Hidden Superpower will help you:

  • See simple acts of kindness from a new and empowering perspective;
  • Learn how to make kindness a habit and experience more peace, inspiration, and impact;
  • Engage kindness at work and enjoy remarkable opportunities—plus, know how to get from “here” to “there” quickly; and
  • Activate kindness as a force to reconnect you to your authentic self, replenish your passion and creativity, and find your voice.
