Our Training Team

All JoiningTogether’s on-site and public training programs incorporate our unique
5 step training” methodology.

Our experienced trainers, instructors, and educators provide students with a learning journey through a build-on
step by step understanding of:

  • Knowing Yourself and Knowing Others – recognizing cultural differences.
  • Unpacking Culture and Diversity.
  • Decluttering stereotypes.
  • Embracing personal learning and building real relationships.
  • Stepping out to plan and embrace practices in life situations.

There are so many other cultural building blocks and strategies you can deploy to exponentially get more results,
for example

  • How to know the cultural makeup of your staff and build strong organizational respect for diversity.
  • How to build genuine community relationships so you can develop business confidence and success.
  • How to embed culturally appropriate practices so you can develop everyone’s strengths and potential within a team.

Our Team of educators and trainers help participants to actively identify and discuss the implications of cultural
diversity and workplace behavior and management style, building the confidence and competence of participants long
after leaving the training room.
