FLI for the first time, with the partnership of Payap University, Thailand, was able to offer a year-long course to any of its language development trainees that provided a certificate from an accredited international university. This was very valuable partnership FLI has had in its history which enhanced organizational management skills of the participants. 12 participants from eight language communities; three from south and nine from north Pakistan benefited from the program.
The main objectives of the 13 credit course, among many were:
- Introducing the participants to the interplay of interpersonal skills and diversity in an organizational setting;
- Ability to identify the benefits and challenges of a diverse work environment and understand the unifying and motivating effect that effective core values can have on an organization;
- Understanding the system thinking and identity the strengths and weaknesses in their organizational systems;
- Identification of the essential habits of high performing teams and ways to strengthen the effective habits of their teams etc.
The certificates were awarded to the trainees in Islamabad on 12 Apr 2017. FLI also distributed experience certificates among those who facilitated the course while the services of our Language Consultant and Training Coordinator were appreciated and honoured by presenting them shields from Executive Director of FLI.
