Qualities of Self Leadership:
Making Global Connections
Three members of the Foundation's Board were in attendance at the fourth Spirit of Humanity Forum, held in Iceland at the end of May. Consistent with the mission of the Foundation, the theme of the Forum focused on achieving harmony in a world of difference.
A brief introductory IFS experience was hosted during a breakout session by Mark Milton, a founding member of the Forum's Executive Circle; Harley Goldberg, DO, Chair of the Board; and Toufic Hakim, PhD, Executive Director--all of whom individually covered their own travel and accommodation expenses. The workshop, which was well attended and received, featured two audio meditations by IFS Developer Dick Schwartz, PhD.
This was a meaningful opportunity for the Foundation to expand the visibility of IFS and help establish significant connections with leaders and sister organizations in the field of emotional health and well-being.
Around the same time, and to expand the Foundation's global connections further, two volunteer associates, Sharayah Morrissey, LMFT (Global Outreach) and Audrey Fernandez-Fraser, MDiv, LMSW (Social Media). attended a daylong workshop at the United Nations in New York City on the value of Emotional Intelligence in Achieving the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Presenters included author Daniel Goleman and Assistant Secretary-General Bintou Keita.
