Impossible to Possible: Building Resilience

Oct. 3, 2017 18:00 - 20:00


Book this event

When faced with a crisis, challenge, or even just an unfamiliar situation it is easy to get caught up in our own thinking. We often revert to old habits and behaviours, or succumb to fear or panic, leading to inaction or bad decisions.

Today’s volatile, ever-changing business environment means that situations like these arise all too often, and doing nothing or reverting to old, ineffective patterns simply isn’t good enough. We need to be resilient and innovative to battle through and find new solutions, but how can we break out of a negative mindset and deeply-ingrained patterns to do that?

One way is to challenge ourselves to explore new sources of ideas and inspiration, such as the real-life stories of refugees who have overcome unimaginable hardships to turn their lives around and set up successful businesses and projects.

In collaboration with RIJ, who support sustainable projects around the world that allow refugees regain their independence and dignity, we draw learning from individual success stories to identify how they overcame the obstacles they faced, and how this learning can help us build resilience and an innovative mindset in the face of our own challenges.

You’ll leave this interactive session inspired by incredible stories, and with a toolkit that you can take back and apply in your own workplace from the very next day.

The session will be delivered by Tove Kinooka and Gavin Dixon of BCCJ member firm Global Perspectives, in conjuncion with Refugees International Japan
