We all want to be forgiven for the screw-ups. The problem is we’re taught how to forgive others, but not how to ask for it ourselves. PederTellefsdal learned this the hard way. For many years he lived a double life: respected political advisor by day, “Party Peder” by night. When his guilt and regret finally pulled him into a deep hole of despair, he embarked on a “forgiveness road trip” - to take responsibility for his actions, one small act at a time. Content Creators are what we do, not what we say. And in this talk, Peder shares the tools he discovered to truly own the screw-ups whenrelationships are on the line. PederTellefsdal believes that what we do in small, we do in large.
For 12 years he worked as a political advisor, shaping reforms and advising politicians on media and public debates. Today he’s a Senior Communications Advisor and partner at Innoventi. In both fields he discovered the power of trust - not just building it, but practicing it in the small, daily moments.
On the stage at TEDxArendal, Peder will explore another “small” practice: the power of asking for forgiveness. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx
