UF Leadership Development Workshop Series Presents “Tempered with Fire”
University of Findlay invites the campus and community to a special session of Training Oilers in Organizational Leadership (T.O.O.L.) Development Workshop Series on Wednesday, March 23.
“Tempered with Fire” will take place in Winebrenner, 7:30-8:30 p.m., and features Cody Byrns, bestselling author, international speaker, and founder of the Cody Byrns Foundation for Burn Survivors. This free event is open to the public and registration is not required.
Byrns was involved in a life-altering, and life-threatening, experience when he was rear-ended by a box truck that failed to stop. As a result, he received many injuries that including severe burns to almost 40% of his body. After years of countless surgeries and rehabilitation, Byrns has chosen to not allow his scars to keep him bound in bitterness and defeat. Instead, he uses his story to inspire others.
His goal is to help people live free from the bonds of scars (physical and emotional), equip others with the proper steps to walk out of their past hurt and defeat, and run towards their God-given potential. As a thought leader, he speaks worldwide to provide relevant, applicable, and thought-provoking messages. In 2016, Byrns founded the Cody Byrns Foundation for Burn Survivors, a non-profit burns foundation that has been able to help many survivors recover.
The T.O.O.L. Development Workshop Series provides networking opportunities between peers and speakers, encourages students to expand their leadership skillsets, and empowers students to develop an understanding of what is expected of leaders all while listening to interesting stories and unique points of view.
This program is hosted annually by University of Findlay’s Student Activities, Commuter Services, and Leadership Development, in collaboration with the Student Government Association and Student Activities Board.
