Keys to Our Training Approach
Rather that just arrive in your community and deliver a canned training program, we work with you to build your capacity as part of the process and identify how to incorporate a legacy element that remains in the community.
Working with a ground team comprised of individuals representing our client's interests, these people support the development process and take responsibility for targeted activities in the community to reduce the overall project costs of out-sourcing 100% of the project. We build the capacity of the ground team as part of developing the course.
Our collaborating partners are individuals who have a distinct area of expertise that will benefit the project. They are integral to ensuring that you get the best mix of talent for your investment. All our partner are active in their areas of expertise be that sustainability, digital media, marketing, experience development, etc.
Keys to Our Development Work
We listen and learn from you, share our perspectives, then collaborate on the creating the solutions and outcomes that work for you! The templates, constructs and models we use are grounded in theory and practice to keep them credible and real.
