TEDx Livestream: Free Yourself When Conflict Resolution Fails

Posted June 21, 2019 • Conflict Mastery,Events,Leadership,Mindfulness,Workshops & Programs • by Jennifer Goldman-Wetzler, Ph.D.

I’m excited (and still nervous!) to give tomorrow’s TEDx talk in NYC: Free Yourself When Conflict Resolution Fails. In the practice runs, I’ve seen people tearing up, and people have told me they’ve learned a lot in 8 minutes.

My purpose is not to leave anyone shedding a tear, but the story I tell is a deeply personal one, and I’m glad it has been resonating with people. I hope the same will be true for you.

Some of you asked for the Livestream link, which is here. You can click “Get Reminder” on the pinned post to be reminded when the event begins.

I’ll be speaking at around 6 or 6:15 pm EST tomorrow, Saturday, June 22. (I’m on second to last. The event begins at 3 pm and ends at 7 pm EST).

Each of the other speakers has a unique and inspiring message– the theme of the event is “Unconventional Journeys.” The speaker before me, Louis Boria, a.k.a. Brooklyn Boy Knits, has a large Instagram following and a great message: live your dreams, even when you’re scared of being judged.

Closing the event, the speaker after me, Heather “Lucky” Penney, is a fighter pilot talking about her mission to intercept the plane that was headed for the Pentagon on 9/11.

If you miss the livestream tomorrow, I’ll post the video of my TEDx talk once it’s up online in a month or so 🙂

And now that I’ve finally written it all down for the book (coming in early 2020), I’m inspired to keep sharing what I’ve learned over more than a decade of teaching this stuff. So stay tuned for advice about how to free yourself from conflict, at work, at home and in the world.

For now, wishing you a happy first day of summer, and thanks for being here,

Jen
