Five-Step Process

Relational Development

Generally the process starts when an indigenous leader or an expat who employs indigenous talent contacts us with a particular training need. We communicate until we are confident that we understand the leader’s felt needs (the desired outcomes) and that he or she understands our expectations.

Proposal Development

After we understand the training context and desired training outcomes, we prepare a training proposal. This proposal includes a description of the trainees, their training needs, anticipated hurdles that will need to be negotiated, the trainers, and a budget that includes funding sources and sufficient revenue to cover all costs.

Trainer Preparation

The trainers will prepare a curriculum that considers the trainees current competency, the time available, the desired outcomes, and cultural and contextual sensitivities.

Training Event

The content will be delivered interactively as opposed to lecture and other one-way delivery strategies. Our hope is that real change will result. Real change comes through life-on-life relationship. Our trainers create a relationship-based training environment.


Ongoing monitoring and adjustment occurs during the training event. A trainee/trainer evaluation form and conversation is completed near the conclusion of the training event. A written assessment of the training process is completed within a month following the conclusion of the training event.
