Thriving through Uncertainty:Resilient Leadership

Everyone experiences stress and adversity, but must be able to bounce back in order to meet new challenges. The pandemic has continued for more than two years. Students have experienced unprecedented educational disruption from repeating school closures, resumptions, face-to-face class arrangements and online learning, and are struggling to face different challenges under the new normal.

The Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups conducts an annual survey on stress index with secondary school students. The 20201 results found that secondary school students faced the most pressure in a decade in which more than half of the secondary school pupils (52%) felt stressed about falling behind on their coursework during the pandemic. Although the result in 20212 falls back slightly to 48%, there have been several cases of students committing suicide since the beginning of the school year.

Resilient leaders bounce back from setbacks. The Institute makes good use of its facilities at the former Fanling Magistracy to design a series of resilient leadership training programmes. Hack the CrisisBeyond Insights - Leadership Certificate Course improves participants’ emotional intelligence, adversity intelligence and spiritual intelligence through 6 training themes. For example, Wellness Generation & Mindfulness aims to develop participants’ wellness and mindfulness mindset as well as learn how to express personal feelings effectively and accurately. They will be further strengthened by capacity building to turn adversity into opportunities with agility. Communication Walker and The Art of Appreciation introduce communication theories and the techniques of appreciation to avoid communication blind spots. Through skills training simulation and practice, participants will develop their wellness and self-leadership.

Rise and Shine Through Service-learning and Scholarship

Young people at the senior secondary stage have already demonstrated leadership qualities by assuming leadership roles in schools. The Hong Kong 200 Leadership Project (“Project”) encourages experiential learning opportunities. Through dialogue sessions with prestigious social leaders, workshops, seminars, organisation visits and implementation of social innovation projects, it enriches participants’ understanding of current issues and important development trends in both local and global society while nurturing an innovative mindset among our future leaders for tackling social problems and making a positive impact on the community.

Peony Sham, a student from Shatin College and school debating team captain, was the champion of the junior division of the HKFYG English Public Speaking Contest. She joined the Project last year through school nomination. She and her team designed a local virtual tour with Virtual Reality (VR) for seniors with limited mobility. The idea has won the Silver Award. The Project aims to encourage participants like Peony and her team to put thoughts into action by using design thinking skills and creating a prototype of their project addressing social issues, reinforcing their willingness to give back to Hong Kong.

Last year, the Project also provided scholarships
 to participants and alumni who wish to broaden their regional and global vision to join short online leadership courses offered by renowned universities like Harvard University and the University of Oxford. Peony also applied for the scholarship to study online leadership foundation courses at Harvard University as she believes that effective communication and collaboration skills are essential to achieve professional goals. 

Audrey Kwan, another team member studying at Kowloon True Light Middle School, further exerted her peer influence and inspire other classmates to visit an elderly community centre and “lead” the seniors to “walk around” Hong Kong with the VR experience. The elderly enjoyed the “trip” and wished to visit more places. Moreover, it encouraged Audrey to further improve the content and application of the experience after the public exam.

Hong Kong 200 turns our ideas into reality. I am very thankful to my team and mentors who help us a lot to execute the design to serve more seniors in society. I never thought that our design can bring significant impact on senior’s mental and physical health.

The First Consideration Beyond Conservation

Every heritage building has its unique historical and cultural significance. Therefore, it is essential to renovate the heritage building to consider safety and heritage values. The central atrium at the former Fanling Magistracy was primarily preserved, including the random patterned artificial granite tiles as floor finishes, the ornamental metal balustrades and profiled timber railings to the court on the second floor. However, the old-style barriers did not meet today's safety standards. Hence, glass walls have been installed to ensure safety while helping to minimise damage to the historical components.
