Delivered by Randy Verdone, a Certified Peer Coach (CPC) who brings over 18 years of experience together in order to provide peer coaching in a unique way. Randy's patience, understanding, knowledge and background provide the perfect combination of knowledge and experience to draw his material from. Despite currently teaching a Computer Basics Course at ACCKWA as well as being involved with various personal coaching clients, Randy is a single father of two, still finds the time to customize, redevelop and deliver valuable training programs (such as this) to various non=profit organizations.
The workshop series that has been developed for the WRTE is one of his best.
So what will you learn and how would it impact you?
• You will learn to "listen" in new ways.
• You will be able to identify and set Personal Boundaries and understand their importance to the time-bank movement.
• You will receive valuable experience in coping with and building relationships between people with different personal value systems.
And that is just the beginning. As an added bonus, Randy will provide to one individual the complete training required in order to apply to become a Certified Peer Trainer. (for complete rules you must attend the first workshop).
For that one lucky individual that means a savings of over $[masked]! (Some of the roles that a Certified Peer Trainer can fill include peer counsellor, peer mentor, peer helper, peer facilitator, peer mediator, peer tutor)
This workshop series is not set up to educate, rather it is set up to allow learning through a variety of activities.
So take the time to attend, learn a few things, meet some new people, strengthen existing friendships and most importantly LET'S HAVE FUN!
I hope to see you all there!!
