Rethinking What's Possible

The Rethinking What’s Possible workshop is a two-hour experience that brings the village classroom to you, brings new perspective and creates a powerful learning environment.

We believe that the most outstanding examples of courageous and effective leadership producing transformational outcomes today are happening in the remote, rural villages where The Hunger Project works.

“The Hunger Project is about helping individuals to shift into a mindset that says they can actually solve their own hunger…The first thing you have to do is get an individual to shift their behaviour, and if you get enough individuals to shift their behaviours then the entire village will change.”

–Michael Rennie
Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company Australia/NZ

With all the reasons why it’s not possible, the poorest of the poor are redefining what is possible. They may be illiterate, but they are getting water to their villages, stopping child marriages and creating new businesses. They are achieving results in the harshest of conditions.

The Hunger Project has decoded these lessons in leadership for a U.S. setting. That same ability to move from “I can’t” to “I can” to “We can” is available for us in the U.S. too. The Rethinking What’s Possible workshop uncovers these learnings for you.

The Rethinking What’s Possible workshop will:

  • Share the inspiring stories of our village partners.
  • Recalibrate your perspective with examples of what’s possible in your life.
  • Challenge your assumptions about what’s limiting your capacity.
  • Explore how entrenched beliefs can be transformed.
  • Give you insights into the work of The Hunger Project and invite you to consider your role in ending hunger.

Whether you live in a rural village in India or a city in the U.S., there is a leader inside of you who is capable of the most profound transformations, be it in your family, your organization or the world. The Rethinking What’s Possible workshop is your opportunity to create a compelling new vision of what’s possible for you both personally or for your business.

“Rethinking What’s Possible takes the idea of ‘teach a man to fish’ and flips it upside down, sideways and backward. Instead, leaders from rural villages halfway across the globe are teaching us -- about the world and about ourselves. What can we learn from the rural poor that’s useful in our own lives? A dazzling amount."

–Kevin Salwen, Author of The Power of Half
