Often we hold ourselves back from achieving our full potential for hidden unexamined reasons. Ask a few simple and powerful ‘barrier busting’ questions to boost your students’ confidence and expand their thinking.
The morning kicked off with personal leadership journeys shared by Mr. Stephen Howard & Mr. Khawar Mann. Both leaders who gave us valuable insights that went straight through my heart! Briefly the points were:
“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.”
The day started of with a panel discussion by 3 successful British Muslims (Aaqil Ahmed, Peter Sanders & Bushra Nair CBE) and their contributions or efforts to bring communities together. Listening to their experiences really reflects the whole spirit of MOSAIC which was to highlight the contributions of British Muslims in the UK.
Alhamdulillah we survived Day 1 (and the cold, wet London weather). We were priviliged to have Ms. Deema Bibi, CEO of Injaz and Baroness Warsi share their personal leadership journeys with the Mosaic delegates today.
