Our Train-the-Trainer (TTT)

The difference between a D&I trainer and a D&I facilitator is a trainer teaches. A facilitator uses what a participant knows, and through facilitated discussion, leads individuals to unique insights and discoveries. JLA’s approach is a combination of the two.
Our TTT approach concentrates on four primary competencies:
- Active Listening
Like with all of our education, we are keenly aware of designing content and facilitating using adult learning theories and an experiential approach.
