Webinar: The Power of Systemic Forgiveness
August 9, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT
The Power of Systemic Forgiveness
Wednesday, August 9th
12:00pm Pacific / 3:00pm Eastern
At some point, all people will experience adversity and the response to that adversity will directly impact your relationship’s success or lack thereof. This topic will challenge you to consider how you currently employ forgiveness and encourage you to champion it in the workplace and in your life. Forgiveness is not often considered or described as a strategy for success in most organizations or life. Yet, it is clearly required for effective interpersonal relationships and innovation.
Research bears out the impact forgiveness has on our health, sleep, and resilience, but very few people are exploring this wellspring of untapped energy. Dr. Allen through her research, writings, and lived experience is on a mission to share the need to choose forgiveness now!
Sharing her early Air Force stories has helped countless past audiences to understand the experience of women who serve. Come and explore how you might embrace the power of forgiveness. Allen intends to teach others the importance of forgiving self, others and even systems. Using songs, poems, and stories, this session will be one you will never forget!
