SESSION 1: LEADERSHIP & ADDING C.R.E.A.M. TO YOUR DAILY COFFEE
On Thursday, July 31, Legacy International kicked off a new virtual exchange series connecting Legacy Friends and Alumni on Leading in Challenging Times, with Virginia State Delegate and entrepreneur, Mr. Sam Rasoul. In his interactive and engaging presentation, Mr. Rasoul introduced the fresh acronym “C.R.E.A.M.” to remind participants how they can add a little extra to their “daily coffee”, to maintain personal balance during difficult times: Communication. Routine. Empowerment. Awareness. Movement. Legacy Friends and Alumni on the call then exchanged their own examples of how they maintain empathetic communication, stay productive, empower others, self-evaluate, and stay healthy when regular routines are upended.
SESSION 2: GOAL-SETTING IN TIMES OF DISRUPTION
How do you set goals in times of disruption? In this interactive session, on April 2, Mr. Raj Kumar discussed how he establishes and achieves leadership goals in uncertain times and environments. A peace and youth activist from interior Sindh, Pakistan, Mr. Kumar is the first Pakistani to receive the Emerging Young Leaders Award from the U.S Department of State for his work in Pakistan on countering violent extremism and promoting women’s empowerment. Following Mr. Kumar’s engaging talk, the floor opened for discussion in multiple breakout rooms. To circumvent the challenges of disruption in their goal-setting, participants shared what they thought were barriers to achieving their own goals. In a call to action, Mr. Kumar then challenged participants to identify five new personal or professional goals.
