Speaker: John A. Warnick, Esq., Founder, Purposeful Planning Institute
Description: Most PPI members are familiar with the empirical evidence that supports gratitude as an important practice for elevating individual happiness and well-being. But the findings of the Science of Generosity Initiative endowed by Sir John Templeton’s $5 Million grant aren’t widely understood.
In this PPI webinar, John A. Warnick will examine the question of whether well-being triggers generosity or generosity unleashes well-being and happiness. We’ll consider the 9 casual relationships between generosity and individual well-being. We’ll explore what the research demonstrates the benefits of a generosity practice are.
Finally, we’ll tackle the question of how we can apply this research and findings to our work with legacy families and families in business and we’ll close with a quick reminder of how we can use the Thanksgiving season as a time to promote thankfulness within our individual, family and professional circles.
