Learning

 

 

      

Tell me and I forget. 

Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn.

 

  Benjamin Franklin          

 

At CommonGround, we prefer to use the word "learning" rather than "training" when we refer to our various educational offerings.  Why?

To us, training can imply a somewhat static process -  one-dimensional and interpretative -  information passed from "us to you".  Learning, from a CommonGround perspective, is a fluid, interactive experience created between the presenter of the information and those receiving it. Our approach to learning is experiential, an expansion of knowledge, sharing of experiences and exchange of collective wisdom.  We are all teachers. We are all learners. 

Our partners offer a variety of customized learning opportunities based on your needs.  We are experienced at creating small group workshops for personal or team development; one or two day leadership transformation retreats; and on-site classroom-style instruction to enhance communication, customer service and sales skills. CommonGround also provides numerous offerings focused on women's empowerment and life-enhancing competencies.  We specialize in creating culturally sensitive materials and our reach extends from the US and Canada to Europe, Australia and East Africa. 

Please contact us for more detail about our learning opportunities and the possibilities available for you or your business.
