Empowerment & Peak Performance Through Forgiveness
Megan explains how bitterness damages our hearts and brains, and sabotages the productivity and profitability of our organizations.

The Three Key Habits of Good Forgivers
You can have the sharpest business strategies in the world, but if your team members don’t get along, fail to collaborate and suffer from poor emotional and physical health, you’ll be hard-pressed to reach your goals. Research shows that people who are forgiving of others and themselves tend to be healthier and happier. They also perform better at work, provide valuable organizational leadership and are more highly rated by their relationship partners.
Megan shares The Three Key Habits of Good Forgivers: authenticity, healthy boundaries and inspired purpose. We can use them to recover from tragedy, disappointment and conflict, as well as to improve health and wellbeing, relationships and professional performance.
Build a Culture of Collaboration to Guide Your Brand
Winston Churchill said, “We shape our houses, and then they shape us.” The same can be said for the cultures of our companies and institutions. They shape how we relate to others, what we do and the way others perceive us. And when it comes to fostering team members’ more collaborative tendencies, social science research provides a blueprint for building organizations that nurture the “better angles of our nature.” In this talk, Megan shares her reporting from around the world on the proven practices that prevent and diffuse conflict while fostering authentic collaboration and teamwork. From an urban Baltimore school to post-genocide Rwanda, she brings practical tools that any organization can use to diffuse conflict and fuel collaboration and inspired leadership around organizational goals.
