Tokyo, 4 April 2018 — Influencing for peace, human rights, and development is the challenge that brought Leaders for Peace together in the Work In All Colors training in Tokyo.
Fifteen professionals from countries in Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas gathered to sharpen their skills in influencing for peace, human rights, and development, in a training organized by the Rotary Peace Center at the International Christian University in Tokyo.
The program was coordinated by Miyoko Misumi of the Rotary Peace Center (right) and delivered by Coaches Wouter (left) and Vanh (center) of TransformationFirst.Asia.
Through a combination of cognitive and experiential learning activities, the leaders practiced how to build trust for collaboration by speaking in the language of their audience.
Comprising a diverse group of senior and emerging leaders with backgrounds ranging from international organizations, peace-keeping forces, civil society, academia, and entrepreneurship, the leaders brought together a wealth of knowledge and experience in projects to create positive change.
With cherry blossoms in bloom, the green campus of ICU offered the training participants a beautiful natural setting to reflect on their personal leadership journeys.
