Flexibility and Adaptability
Oumar Dieng, speaker and coach, knows better than most on how to be resilient. After his home was attacked and destroyed, and he was separated from his family, Oumar traveled through refugee camps to make his way to safety in America. Not knowing how to speak any English, Oumar defied all odds and found success as an entrepreneur in his new home. In episode one of ValueVerse, Oumar shares his life story and gives suggestions on how to be resilient in all aspects of life.
While Oumar and Kawan discuss many factors, for Oumar, the key to resilience is in the ability to be flexible. Without it, Oumar would never have survived the chaos of his early life. Once he settled in America, Oumar quickly realized the true power of flexibility. Not only was he able to overcome the biggest challenges in his personal life but being flexible allowed him to dominate in the business world as well.
