LEARN NEW TOOLS, BUILD COMMUNITY
After hearing the desire from educators, trainers, coaches and other facilitators to learn how EFLI creates transformative experiences, we developed TRAIN THE TRAINER to share our methodology, practices, tools, and philosophies. The roots of EFLI practices stem from Eileen Fisher, the woman and the company. She says “there are many ways to lead, many styles of leadership and many kinds of effective leaders. We each have the potential to make a difference.”
The EFLI TRAIN THE TRAINER weekend opens the door for facilitators, coaches, trainers, educators and leaders from diverse backgrounds and experiences to learn from an award winning youth serving organization. EFLI has adapted, for young people, the unique set of leadership practices of EILEEN FISHER, a multi-million dollar women’s clothing brand with an inspiring vision and purpose centered around sustainability which has grown and expanded over 30 years across the United States, the UK and Canada. Utilizing kinesthetic learning, mindfulness based practices, social emotional intelligence and activities rooted in connection and collaboration, EFLI supports young people by inspiring and activating them to prepare for the world’s ever changing challenges. Facilitators joining EFLI for TRAIN THE TRAINER will gain new skills, engage in their own facilitation styles and learn how to create a transformative experience. In addition to gaining these new tools, facilitators will walk away more deeply connected with themselves and one another and have expanded their circles of community.
“Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the Train the Trainer Weekend. Not only was it an educational experience but also it was inspirational. You're such thoughtful and smart facilitators. You brought out a collective essence of such glorious, dynamic and giving people. That was stupendous. I'll always remember it and take so many pieces of it with me and I know others will as well.”
