For all the benefits of technology (which, in our project, are immense), using it can be incredibly trying (particularly over a slow wifi connection and with intermittent power cuts). Today, we spent the day practicing using the tools in the program designed for coaches.
Everyone partnered up and began exploring the program. We have a diverse group, and with that comes a spectrum of skills. So, we partnered our stronger technophiles with some of our techno-curious individuals.
After 72 hours of role-plays, peer-to-peer support, too many samosa and chai breaks, and lots of questions, our in-person training came to an end. We are now ready to transition back into the virtual communication and collaboration world in which we seem to live these days. Although google hangouts are what keep our team across the globe connected, there is just something special/unmatchable about being able to look someone directly in the eyes when communicating.
