This week iMultiply held the first of our 2019 events, kicking off with a leadership dinner at the quirky Badger and Co in Edinburgh. The evening was based around the discussion of building resilience using self-awareness, with psychologist and strengths coach Katie Banham. Katie is recognised by BBC Scotland as an expert on the Psychology of Potential and is a Past Chair of Occupational Psychologists in Scotland. Katie recently wrote a blog for us, where she explores navigating leadership, which can be found HERE.
Throughout the year, iMultiply host a series of thought leadership events with the aim of inspiring, connecting and knowledge sharing. The discussion of this evening certainly gave us a lot to think about!
Some of the reflective questions, which came out of the evening where:
- How do you push people who aren’t ‘anti fragile’ so you don’t protect them too much?
- What is the value of things going wrong?
- How do you get out of your comfort zone and build confidence?
- How do you get your team to think about how they are ‘anti fragile’?
Some additional materials for those looking to read more on the subject:
