ValuesJammer in the Spotlight ….
or On Stage?
Who are you?
My name is Jenny Haase and I live in Utah in the U.S. I have spent much of my career in the field of Leadership and Organizational Development, primarily in the areas of Client and Employee Experience, Design of Transformational Events, and C-Suite Support Partner.
As the founder of Kindness from the Heart, I believe that even a seemingly small act of Kindness can unleash an energy that ripples in ways unimagined … touching countless lives and transcending generations. My mission is to share a compelling vision for creating a Legacy of Kindness.
What are your core values?
Kindness, Gratitude, Connection with Nature, Family, Love and Relationships and Honesty
Why did you join the ValuesJam community?
I loved the concept of a fun and interactive way to connect with others and to explore values … where I might share my own beliefs and be open to new ideas to consider. And I couldn’t resist: “Caution: This card deck might just inspire harmony in the world through greater understanding!”
How are you using your ValuesJam card decks?
I attend ValuesJam sessions on occasion, and I’m looking for opportunities to host my own ValuesJam sessions with Kindness as the featured value.
The Universe showed its sense of humor last year on November 13 when my highly-anticipated ValuesJam card deck finally arrived from “across the pond.” It just happened to be World Kindness Day!

Anytime I hear something I haven’t considered before but that resonates with me and gives me something new to ponder about that particular value.
How could more KINDNESS improve the world?
In a world that seems to be growing more divisive and challenging, Kindness is more important than ever before. Kindness refuses the distinctions that separate us … things like race, class, education, religion, ethnicity, gender, disability, and political party. Kindness affirms each person. It helps us look past our perceived differences to find common ground and open our hearts and minds to those whose values may be different than our own.
By deepening and expanding our practice of Kindness (both individually and collectively), we can bring a profound sense of Joy, Abundance and Hope into our own lives, and to the lives of others.
Kindness is truly a superpower!
What drew you to adopt the ValuesJam card KINDNESS?
As someone who identifies as a “Kindness Ambassador” … how could I not adopt the ValuesJam KINDNESS card?
