Foundational Module Workshops

The Genuine Contact program foundational workshops are made up of four distinct yet interrelated modules. They also provide the prerequisites necessary for more advanced work with the Genuine Contact program.These modules assist participants to examine the ‘cause’ or ‘root’ behind the operating platform of their organization. The 'cause' or 'root' has a profound effect on results and is worthy of examination. These modules include the opportunity to examine and gain knowledge in holistic leadership of the organization for reducing the gap between potential and results. Graduates leave each of the Foundational Module Workshops ready to use the techniques, tools, and concepts that are learned.

Advanced Module Workshops

The Genuine Contact program advanced skill development workshops are made up of five modules. Each is designed to provide techniques, tools, and concepts that have multiple applications for leadership, facilitation, consulting, and managing. Every module provides a unique set of skills and knowledge as well as developing the leadership capacity of the participant. Graduates of every module leave the workshop ready to put what is learned to immediate use and are encouraged to do so to retain and strengthen their learning retention and personal capacity development. Graduates of the final workshop module, Train the Trainer, are authorized to train others in the whole Genuine Contact program.
