“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” (Benjamin Franklin)
The question we often ask ourselves after the completion of training is, so what? We ask this as we are only at the beginning of the journey, and it’s why at Connect to Families we believe post training mentoring is as important as the training itself. Mentors, by looking in with no preconceptions can often see opportunities for improvement and creativity specific to your organisation. Creating a trusted relationship with you is something we take very seriously. It’s this that allows for our training to move from so what?, to consistent and confident practice.
Our mentoring is based upon the methodology of Appreciative Inquiry, also known as AI, which is grounded in social-constructivist theory, utilising questions and dialogue to help staff uncover existing strengths and new opportunities to develop practice even further, as an individual, team and organisation.
