Participants will spend time on the first day working in small groups of peers to demonstrate their training and facilitation skills by teaching the Managers’ Corner curriculum amongst each other. The goal of this concept is to have them apply the techniques of their training and facilitation skills while receiving feedback from peers and the ICN coach/mentor on their strengths and areas in need of improvement. ICN plans to emphasize the train-the-trainer approach during the workshop to ensure managers are well equipped to provide trainings, as part of the professional standards requirement, to their frontline staff by utilizing ICN’s existing curriculums.
ICN also plans to use this session as a way to encourage relationship building and provide constructive feedback and insight. Participants will recap what they discovered during the workshop, share their action plans, and discuss ways they intend to integrate some of the resources identified within their program operation. During this session, participants will also share contact information, at their own discretion, for continued relationship building.
