• Developing and engaging people in relationships

Case Studies from people who received results from working with me in the years past.

kindness doesn't cost

When I first met Renee, we were on LinkedIn, we networked together and started working with Artists and the more we interacted with each other we began to collaborate in writing articles together and as I shared some Social Media tips, thus we have grown our relationship now we stay in touch and help each other.

“Mari-Lyn Harris is a gem of a professional and one of the best discoveries I have made in social media. She shares her extensive knowledge and talent in many areas of business and marketing with an enormous generosity of spirit. I feel very fortunate to have collaborated with her on many projects and I look forward to sharing many more with her in the future.” Renee Phillips, Founder and Director, Editor-in-Chief, Manhattan Arts International


Case Study – Marketing Services

When Bliss and I worked together, were able to get to the point of how he could integrate his art and graphic design together and use Social Media to get his message out there. Success was merging everything together and not trying to hide his talents.

Mari-Lyn provides a good example of what networking looks like, and her online outlets and newsletter provide a stream of valuable information on social networking for business and internet marketing strategies.” Blue Bliss a Graphic Designer and Artist

Case Study – Kindness makes a difference

When I first started Heart@Work – my dream was to inspire world kindness. I began using Kindness to go to workplaces to teach business owners there is another way to have a collaborative and cooperative workplace. Employees and not-for-profits got it right away. However, some business owners said “Kindness” is a fluff word, how can kindness possibly make that much of a difference?

To prove my point, I produced two “Kindness to Colleague Conferences,” and I continue to give Kindness Awards to people who are nominated by their peers. Read more about this

Kindness has been able to turn around many unkind workplace. What are unkind workplaces? Poor customer service, workers not working together, sales not coming in as much as you would like, you feel you are struggling to grow your business. It’s negative, people are uncooperative, there is friction or clicks within the group.

This was my biggest lesson for myself. When I am kind to myself everything else works. When I stand in my truth, I tell myself the truth. When I am sabotaging myself by not being kind to me, it will show up.

“Mari-Lyn is an driven creative and visionary problem-solver with an ability to see the big picture for a business organization. She has a lot to offer to make leaders think outside the box.” Randal Adcock, MA

Since working with Mari-Lyn, we have found that having kindness@work, has given our employees permission, to be more personal with each other. This has removed the “friction” amongst the staff and improved their productivity and communication. Working with Mari-Lyn has been very enjoyable.” Brian Sherrington – Signature Printing – Edmonton, AB

Mari-Lyn presented some ideas that challenged each of us to view our workplaces from different perspectives, points of workplace community, communication systems, people management, workplace wellness statements. I found the presentation enlightening and would recommend her seminars to other organizations.” Audrey Pihulyk of Possibilities Network – Edmonton, AB
