Here are the four common types of training we currently do.
Introduction to Partnering
This gives participants an ability to get a foundational understanding of partnering and partnerships. It explores definition of terms, works through basic concepts and principles, and begins to prepare an organization, business or church in how to they can become more "partnering friendly." This flexible seminar can be done anywhere from 90 minutes to a full day.
The Launching Partnerships Workshop
This 2-3 day workshop unpacks the knowledge and techniques that leaders need to have for facilitating partnering efforts and in how to guide their organization or church into more effective partnering. Also, can be a flexible and "tailor designed" to particular needs. Modules include:
- What Partnering Means
- Outreach Strategies in Partnering
- Developing a Partnering Friendly Organization
- How to Build Consensus
- Facilitating Group Meetings (small and large)
- How to Convene Community Leaders
- Understanding Starfish Movements
And much more.
This intensive workshop looks at the issues common to existing partnering efforts and the ways they can overcome major and minor obstacles. Designed for 2-3 days, it goes through the significant problems and opportunities that facilitators address in long-term partnering. For most people, taking the Launching Partnerships Workshop would be most helpful.
Training Trainers Workshop
This two day event walks people through the explicit abilities needed to teach partnering to others. Substantial work is done looking at how adults learn, how to design events, and the proficiencies needed to present training on partnering. Modules also address strategic planning, coaching in successful partnering in global missions situations, training in facilitating collaboration, evaluation strategies, and brokering relationships for greater networking.
