Background on This Chat Topic: Forgiveness at Work and In Life

A recent article in Forbes magazine caught my eye. Forgiveness – The Least Understood Leadership Trait. The opening line of the article draws you in.

It hooked me with the claim that online search for leadership and forgiveness produced little if any results. It made me stop and ask myself how often have I heard forgiveness discussed in business? Not often. It made me wonder, why not?
