Authorization to Teach the Genuine Contact Program
Graduates of the Train the Trainer program are authorized to teach all of the components of Genuine Contact program both as a public offering as well as inside organizations, corporations, and other groups. Graduates of ‘train the trainer’ are authorized to train others in all of the modules including the ‘train the trainer’ module, thus ensuring that a graduate has the authority to confer authority to teach the Genuine Contact program to others.
For example, you might come from a distant country to become an authorized trainer of the Genuine Contact program. When you return home, you can lead public workshops to train others in all of the modules, including authorizing graduates of your own Train the Trainer programs to lead their own training sessions. A second example is to imagine having a selected number of people in your company learn the Genuine Contact program with us. Once these people graduate from the final component, the ‘train the trainer’, they can be the ones to train others within your workforce in this program or its specific components.
Co-Ownership of the Genuine Contact Program
When you graduate from the ‘train the trainer, you join a growing number of colleagues internationally who are working with the Genuine Contact Program. Graduates of the “train the trainer” become co-creators of the Genuine Contact program within a limited set of “givens”.
Graduates have the opportunity to participate in this co-creation and to choose to also become co-owners. Co-ownership has a financial commitment of support and is voluntary. Graduates are expected to engage in life long learning, expanding their personal experience of genuine contact as well as expanding their knowledge of the subject matter in the different workshop modules. The Genuine Contact Co-owners Group, Inc provides for this life long learning and expansion through an online international mentoring circle via a virtual home. Graduates have the opportunity to experience the Genuine Contact Co-owners Group, Inc as a Genuine Contact Organization (GCO), providing ongoing learning in a lived experience of an international and evolving GCO. Participating in this online mentoring circle, assisting in the co-creation of the Genuine Contact program, and even participating in decision making as a Co-owner all give graduates the opportunity to hone their skills, knowledge, and capacity.
