Why BCD Communications/Kind and Firm Parenting for Your Organization?


BCD Communications, the parent company of Kind and Firm Parenting, specializes in Team-Building for organizations, using the similar Positive Discipline concepts that Kind and Firm Parenting uses, geared towards adult-to-adult communication. Here are some examples of the concepts:

  • Mutual respect - respect for oneself and others

  • Social equality - dignity and respect for everyone 

  • Behavior is purposeful - aimed toward belonging and significance

  • Behavior is determined by beliefs - need to look at the belief behind someone's behavior to understand the cause

  • Neurobiology is a factor - hard to solve a problem when you're upset

  • Encouragement - misbehaving adults are discouraged adults

Our goal is to empower your organization's team to work together in a more respectful, effective manner. We do this through experiential activities in our workshops which help participants put "themselves in the other person's shoes". Many "aha" moments are achieved which lead to longer-lasting learning and growth. A more effective team improves the success of projects, and in turn, adds to the organization's overall success.

The Lunch and Learn Workshops help parents and other employees with children in their lives to be able to interact with them in a more respectful way, which leads to better cooperation. Employees' stress is reduced and they have improved relationship and communication skills which can also be used in the work environment (since the same Positive Discipline concepts can be used, as previously mentioned, in adult/adult communication). This, in turn, benefits the organization.
