We took our signature Indigenous awareness training program to a whole new level when we developed Working Effectively with Indigenous Peoples™ based on participant and customer needs and requests. Further extensive field testing confirmed that any training should be designed to help individuals and organizations work more effectively rather than just raise awareness. In this training our goal is to help participants get beyond Indigenous awareness to practical skills and tools that can be applied everywhere.
Indigenous issues like land claims and self-government represent some of the biggest change, challenges, risks and exciting opportunities for organizations today. With some tried and proven approaches individuals and organizations can position themselves to take advantage of the major change under way in Canada now. We provide a review of historical events and their relation to the present economic environment; explore critical issues of taxation, housing, and education; show how working with Indigenous Peoples can enhance your career and business; and help you understand cross-cultural perspectives.
Provide an explanation of why to work with Indigenous Peoples at all.
Provide a safe environment to explore complex Indigenous issues in a non-confrontational way.
