Event Details

Please join this special National event with Joe Britto of Innate Leaders to explore the power of 'flexibility of mind; An event that will set a foundation for optimum learning and 'take away' value in the upcoming spring sessions.

Is it possible that looking back will assist with moving forward? What about the way we think; is our mindset in the proper place to allow reaching full organizational and decision making potential?

The American experience of the Spanish Flu of 1918 – 1920 offers three lessons to manufacturing in Canada. First though manufacturers witnessed reduced demand, labor shortages played a larger role in decreased production. Second the decline in output was region specific. And third a theme emerges in how some businesses were able to position themselves to stabilize and then recover.


This session explores how manufacturing in Canada can use the lessons of the Spanish Flu to position business for recovery even as COVID-19 continues into its second wave.


What’s needed is a new way of thinking. A willingness to see the lessons of the Spanish Flu and the effects of COVID-19 as “strategic dots”. Then, with flexibility of mind and genuine curiosity, chart a path forward.



  • Explore the lessons of the Spanish Flu for manufacturing
  • Explore what mindset is, why it matters, and how to use it to solve business challenges
  • Explore strategic dots as a way to understand the COVID-19 landscape
  • Explore flexibility of mind through an interactive experience
  • Consider how participants can use strategic dots and flexibility of mind to benefit their business
