A BCCJ Toolbox session

In a fast-paced global business environment, challenges can land in your inbox on an almost hourly basis. Everyone's busy, expectations are unfeasibly high, and tensions can easily begin to rise.

Leaders are expected to find innovative solutions to problems; staff are expected to be flexible and strong at the same time; everyone is expected to battle through tough times and find new ways of doing things. How you handle such high-pressure situations can impact the success of your team - and make or break your career. 

But when times are tough, it can be easy to get caught up in negative mindsets that favour inaction, or cause us to revert to deeply-ingrained and ineffective patterns of behaviour.

So how can you build the resilience required to cope with stress on the job?

One strategy for increasing emotional resilience is to explore new sources of ideas and inspiration.

On October 3, led by BCCJ Entrepreneur member Global Perspectives, we will engage with the real-life stories of refugees who have overcome unimaginable hardships to turn their lives around and set up successful businesses and projects around the world.

In collaboration with RIJ - a Japan-based organisation that supports refugees in regaining their independence and dignity through sustainable initiatives - this interactive session will highlight incredible examples of resilience, of people overcoming obstacles in the face of great adversity.

You’ll leave this event not only inspired by incredible stories, but also with a resilience toolkit of transferable skills that you can use in your own workplace from the very next day.

Join us for what promises to be a truly enlightening learning and development opportunity.

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