Training of Trainers Workshop (2 days)
Train your staff to develop their own highly interactive, engaging training. These two days are structured as a workshop so after the two days, your staff will leave with the beginning of an outline for their own training topic.
(Series of Three 6 hour Workshops)
Day 1: Cultural Awareness - In this highly interactive workshop, the trainers help their audience to experience diversity from the inside out. Participants begin to think of diversity in terms of their own experiences, values, stereotypes and prejudices. Through several sets of meaningful exercise, participants will actually experience a little of what it feels like to be a minority within a majority culture.
Day 2: Cultural Information - In this workshop, information will be presented regarding research and what it tells us about particular cultural groups. If your agency encounters specific cultures, the information can be tailored to the particular groups you serve. This is the day where staff can get their specific questions answered about other cultures. ( Day 1 is a prequisite to Day 2 and must be taken first)
Day 3: Cultural Skills - In this workshop, the trainers focus on skill development for helpers so that counselors/therapists/social workers can feel comfortable interacting with members of cultures dissimilar from their own. It involves identifying our areas of strength and knowing when it is necessary to seek supervision and possibly refer to someone more qualified.
(Day 2 is a prequisite to Day 3 and must be taken first)

Quote from Ken Blanchard Companies: Research shows that learning, productivity, and morale improve dramatically when training is combined with coaching:
One-to-one coaching helps people take what they've learned, practice it, apply it, and act on it.
- In case studies where coaching was added to training experiences, productivity rose 88%. Without coaching productivity rose only 22% ("Effect on Productivity in a Public Agency." Public Personnel Management, Winter 1997; Neil Rackham. "The Coaching Controversy." Training and Development Journal, November 1979.)
- An independent study by Triad shows that people and performance are positively changed by using a coaching process. Top performers tend to remain in their jobs, positive work environments are created, and revenue increases as individuals exceed their goals. ("Impact Evaluation Report on Coaching.com intervention.")
- Well-known research by Manchester Consulting shows that coahcing dramatically improves working relationships between supervisors, direct reports, and their respective teams, demonstrating a 5:1 return on investment. ("Maximizing the Impact of Executive Coaching." Manchester Consulting, January 2001.)
- Research indicates that managers who are involved in coaching tend to utilize more effective coaching skills with their direct reports and coworkers. ("Impact Evaluation Report on Coaching.com intervention.")
