Listening mindfully to meet your needs
The first step in providing evaluation training to a team of staff and management is to meet and discuss the scope of the knowledge and tool requirements. We meet with the manager first to understand their perspective and current perceptions around the reconciliation process of Western and Indigenous evaluation methodologies within your organization. Once the parameters surrounding reconciliation are understood an online survey is created and circulated among the organizational representatives for their input on what they hope to learn. If you have a broader regional or national staff complement, a series of 3 sessions at 2.5 hours each is usually recommended. Once survey results are in, a draft agenda is created, and through your input a final training course is designed.
