Providence World serves alongside other organizations working with orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC) by training their teams in the areas of leadership development, organizational growth, and collaborative best-practices. We utilize our leadership experience coupled with our many years stewarding the La Providencia best practice, family-based community of care model in Honduras to equip and empower these organizations to move from good, to better, to best. Our program, which is developed in partnership with 21st Century Leadership Skills, is designed to help teams effectively address challenges and achieve their mission objectives through principles of enhanced communications and values-based leadership. This results in their transformed ability to provide excellence-driven, comprehensive care to the children, families and communities they exist to serve.
We are fully committed to equipping partner OVC organizations by training teams to address challenges and achieve their organizational visions. In Sept 2019, we transitioned stewardship of La Providencia to another non-profit organization in order to focus full-time on equipping teams around the world working with orphaned and at-risk children. Since then, we’ve been developing a comprehensive equipping curriculum that centers team development around the DISC Model of Human Behavior and time-tested Values-Based Leadership principles.
In response to COVID-19 and in conjunction with our training partner, we developed a step-by-step training manual that helps teams develop a plan to best lead through and beyond the crisis. We’ve supplemented the manual with complementary coaching sessions to help leaders and their teams identify their most impactful services and best prepare, execute, and monitor those services to ensure their most urgent requirements are being met. Visit our Leading Through Crisis training page for more information.
Our training curriculum is being built using 10-week lesson modules, all based around the concept of space-repetition to ensure full comprehension that results in actual long-term transformation, for both the individual and organization. In total, our training program will consist of three-to-four 10-week training courses with the first course scheduled for release in September 2020. Our existing DISC training program materials are being incorporated into the values-based training to ensure a full-spectrum training solution.
Our training prepares individuals to lead, regardless of their position within the organization. This servant leadership approach is uniquely designed to equip teams with the skills necessary to add value to the children, families, and communities they serve while also contributing to the collective and collaborative effort to achieve a world without orphans.
