THE Wartime Leadership Podcast: The Resiliency of Kim Hamer. On April 16, 2009, Kim 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. She started calling their kind actions "acts of love." After his death, Kim, noticed that managers received no guidance when navigating cancer or death on their teams. She saw how their lack of helpful tools and guidance was costly. It negatively affected employee engagement, increased turnover rates, and lowered productivity. Kim set out to change that. Combining her personal experience with her professional knowledge/leadership skills, Kim launched 100 Acts of Love, a consultancy that provides tools to help leaders increase team productivity, trust, and engagement when cancer affects the whole team member. She is the author of 100 Acts of Love: A Girlfriend's Guide to Loving Your Friend through Cancer or Loss (https://amzn.to/3z8isxH), which is filled with effective ways to support an employee, friend, or coworker. She's an HR consultant and sought-after public speaker.
During this episode, Kim helps us define spiritual resilience as she lives it out daily in her life. We have a truly amazing and lighthearted conversation centered around cancer and the untimely death of her best friend, her husband and how she led her family through the hardest periods of their lives.
