Training Design


The training is in three phases. A two day face to face training consultation followed by podcast (mp3) downloads to cell phones for 30 days, then a final day of face to face integration and reporting back. Each week there are action activities to put the training into practice.

Trainees may download the training podcasts daily off this site, or the trainer may send them daily to all the trainees cell phones. Each podcast is from 5-20 minutes.


At the end of 6 or 8 weeks, the trainees coame back together to tell stories of how they have implemented the training, and to receive their final certificate if they have completed listenig to all the podcasts and completed the assignments.
