Forgiveness in an Unforgiving World
Use the Heart of Emotional Intelligence to Enhance Health & Grow an Empowering Company Culture

Anger and resentment are toxic to our health, as well as to our home and work environments. And due to that toxicity, you can be sure that there is a financial cost to resentment. So, how do we practice forgiveness in an unforgiving world? After spending time with Megan, your audience will not only be empowered, they will have key tools for living a healthy and fulfilling life, at work and at home. They'll also be able to bring to their offices and leadership posts useful practices for fostering the seeking and granting of forgiveness in groups, as well as facilitating powerful collaborations and a positive work environment. ****** How The Program Came About: The Journey & The Book When Megan met a father who forgave the man who killed his son, she was both moved and puzzled. How did he do it? And why? Forgiveness has long been touted as a moral imperative, but as a grudge-holder by nature, Megan wanted to know exactly what it means from a scientific perspective, how it plays out in various situations, and how to do it. She visited people with remarkable tales of interpersonal and group forgiveness throughout the world, from inner city Baltimore to suburban Scottsdale to the heart of Africa. She also ended up on a surprising personal adventure. Megan discovered that forgiveness, when practiced in the right ways, saves lives and safeguards institutions. The constant challenge? We live in a world that can be hard and unforgiving, but if we want to be healthy and fulfilled - and work in healthy and fulfilling organizations - we must learn to seek and grant forgiveness. In an insightful and inspiring keynote, Megan uses personal anecdotes, scientific research and stories about extraordinary people to explain how forgiveness works and how to make it work for you and your organization. She covers the following points: The health dangers of resentment and the benefits of forgiveness – including self-forgiveness. The most common misconceptions about forgiveness and a new, more practical definition. How self-compassion is crucial to performance. How organizations that foster forgiveness in their company culture will succeed while those that don’t will fail (especially in a post-crisis atmosphere). How to implement simple, research-tested practices that minimize conflict and create collaborative and productive relationships. Your audience will leave with tools to release resentment and build the habit of forgiveness in everyday life - both to elevate individual health and wellbeing, and to enhance work performance while building a positive company culture.
