Immediately after the trip to Asia, Becky had to turn around and head to Panamá for a leadership seminar. Participants came from Peru, Mexico, Costa Rica, the US and Canada. Last year we both attended; this year Becky was on the staff of the event.
Over the summer, Becky has focused on setting up a web based system for our translators, literacy workers and support staff throughout the Americas. You can see the home page in the images above. The system was “ready” in late August, but still needed to be tested. The group in Panamá were the first to work in the live system. It allowed them to record their development goals that came out of the coaching sessions that were part of the event. Some participants also used the résumé builder to help record the varied experiences they have had throughout their time in the field.
Step 1 of Becky’s assignment may be done – setting up the web based system. However, Step 2 is just getting started.
In the coming year she will be introducing the system at our centers in Mexico, Peru and Brazil. Getting people to use the available service is the next challenge.
