MEAGAN SPEAKING

Watch Meagan's Speech that received personal praise from Desmond Tutu

MEAGAN SERVES
MISSION FOCUSED ORGANIZATIONS

An organization that leads to win has 4 distinctive characteristics… 

1. Shared Vision that makes a deeper connection

From the executive team to the sales team, each person in the organization knows exactly what they have responsibilities for. They are committed to the mission and understand exactly how their unique role in the organization is essential to its success. 

2. Values Based Culture

Integrity, accountability, mutual respect, and teamwork serve as the foundation for all relationships internally with co-workers, and externally with partners and clients.

3. Effective Communication

Leaders listen aggressively and communicate their vision with passion. They promote open communication and connect with the heart and soul of the people they supervise and work with.

4. Train to Win Mindset

Successful leaders command flawless preparation, not flawless execution! They encourage others to expand their capabilities, and consistently reward high performers who take calculated risks and ‘push the envelope’ in order to grow.

If you’re looking to build a mission-focused culture of trust to adapt to change, break performance barriers, and make deep connections, then you want to book Meagan to speak at your next meeting. 

SPEAKING TOPICS

OWN. SHARE. CONNECT.
Create the life you want

We live in a divisive world. With the charged political climate of today, and especially with the growth of social media, we are seeing a rapid rise in labeling, separation, and hatred. Relationships are being torn apart because of differing political viewpoints, and more and more of us are standing by with despair watching the world we knew slowly fall apart.

More than ever, leaders are needed that are courageous and committed enough to answer the call to a more profound form of leadership, one that focuses on moving past our own prejudices and judgments to create a conversation of peacebuilding. To be effective leaders in today’s world, we need to be willing to dig deeper, to be willing to look more at proactively rather than reactively, and to be models of peace rather than protest.

In this talk, Meagan will discuss and expand on the four major roles of the leaders’ leader:

  • The role of self care as a basic requirement for strong leadership

  • The role of forgiveness in creating change: forgiveness does not undermine or replace justice

  • The role of responsibility: Understanding your own personal and cultural contribution to the issues at hand

  • The role of mindfulness: Defining a situation for what it is to promote more effective and respectful communication

BE THE CHANGE IN THE WORLD
Through forgiveness

Even the best of relationships are complicated. We all come into relationships with a host of assumptions and expectations based on past experiences. Unexplored assumptions and expectations among each other leads to misunderstanding and miscommunication, which leads to disgruntled environments and ultimately decreased communication and a rise in unrealistic expectations and undesired outcomes.

Scientific studies reveal that “forgiveness training has been shown to reduce depression, increase hopefulness, decrease anger, improve spiritual connection, (and) increase emotional self-confidence.”* Forgiveness – learning how to release, move past, and re-structure pent-up energy and resentment – creates a deeper connection amongst all of us and creates a happier and more peaceful social and work climate.

 

Attendees will Experience:

  • Increased corporate efficiency through improved communication

  • A more fulfilling work experience for your employees

  • Greater customer satisfaction and loyalty

  • A clear understand of the myths and forgiveness on the practical value of letting go. 

THE POWER OF
Vulnerable storytelling

We all have stories to tell, stories that are waiting to be told. In this keynote, Meagan talks about the power of vulnerable storytelling as a way to connect with others in a deeper way, to generate healing in our communities/work culture, and as a way to advocate for wider representation and acceptance.

 

Meagan shares her own stories about how vulnerable storytelling has changed her life and brought her wholeness as an openly gay woman from and who lives in Mississippi. As a result of her experiences, Meagan has created a vulnerable storytelling method that guides people towards sharing their own stories in profound and effective ways whether the intent is to share with one person or many. The great Maya Angelou said it best, "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you."

Audience members will learn:

  • The importance of sharing their stories and how to share their stories powerfully through Meagan's three step process

  • How to write their own vulnerable stories using Meagan's unique storytelling method

  • How to use storytelling to create change within ourselves and in our communities

"The topic of vulnerable storytelling struck a chord across multiple resource groups and audiences within the Red Cross. I loved Meagan's talk on a very personal level. We are excited about the possibility of further training we can provide our staff and volunteers where they can format their own story through Meagan's method. Her presentation was moving and we all still raving about it."

TESTIMONIALS

Dana Tate Bailey, ICST, LPC

“Meagan was the keynote speaker for a Women’s Wellness Retreat I attended. Her message was beautiful and powerful and timely; however, that’s not what captured my heart. What touched me so deeply was her presence and her compassionate, resilient heart. Meagan is a creative, dedicated peace keeper, and her message of hope, healing, forgiveness and peace is what this world needs right now.”

“Moving and aggressive. Meagan's story is an inspiring one but not for your comfort. Instead, it challenges us to find those parts of life that may still linger in the shadows, afraid or ashamed to 'come out', be real and truly live. We all need and can benefit from witnessing this kind of courage.”
