These academic roots led to her groundbreaking thesis, “Mothers are the Original Servant Leaders,” which continues to influence her approach to leadership dynamics.

“Kindness is not just a nicety; it’s a powerful tool for creating inclusive, productive, and harmonious workplaces,” says Lindsay Mattes. “By focusing on empathy and communication, we can transform how organizations operate, leading to better outcomes for everyone involved.”

As a highly respected HR strategist, Lindsay holds both the SPHR and SHRM-SCP certifications and has graced notable platforms like TedX, where she discusses the impact of kindness on a global stage. She has also served in key roles with organizations like SLSHRM and Utah SHRM, emphasizing her commitment to advancing the HR profession.

In October 2023, Lindsay Mattes joined the Forbes Council panel discussion as one of 13 expert participants. During the event, she shared insights on a variety of topics, emphasizing the critical intersection of mental health and entrepreneurship. Lindsay also discussed the unique strengths women bring to business and the challenges they face in today’s professional landscape. Additionally, she highlighted the impact of mentorship and addressed the complexities of achieving work-life balance.
