Megan explains how bitterness damages our hearts and brains, and sabotages the productivity and profitability of our organizations.

Keynote Topics 

The Three Key Habits of Good Forgivers

You can have the sharpest business strategies in the world, but if your team members 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 how using The Three Key Habits of Good Forgivers can help us recover from disappointment and conflict, as well as improve health and wellbeing, relationships and professional performance.

Embrace Change and Thrive—No Matter What 

Your company eliminates your role. Your business partner quits. Your spouse leaves or your child moves half-way around the world. We all know change is the one constant in life, but how well do we cope with it, much less capitalize on it?

As a longtime journalist and critically acclaimed author, Megan has studied the science of resilience and traveled the world interviewing people who have flourished in the face of life’s toughest changes. In this keynote, she shares four powerful strategies for turning challenging change into transformational opportunity.

Build a Culture of Unity 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. 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.

  • Megan spoke at our 8th grade commencement. Her speech on forgiving yourself was not only timely for our 8th graders but struck a cord with the entire audience, adults included. She used humor and honesty to impart the importance of taking a step back from the pressures of the world and not being so hard on ourselves.
