EMIT Training Programs
Character and Spiritual Development
EMIT develops spiritually mature leaders that lead with a high ethical code.
EMIT equips leaders with knowledge and practical skills that challenge them to become servant leaders that impact their sphere of influence positively.
The EMIT material helps the leader with the professional skills needed to become more effective in his or her specific vocation.
EMIT trains leaders to become practitioners that strive to transform their communities (outcome-based training).
The end result of our training should be societal transformation. Communities must change from struggling and poor to healthy and prosperous.
Spiritual Leaders are not only leading at their places of worship, but also in their communities in general. Therefor, they must be trained to serve effectively as agents of change.
EMIT is a Non-Profit Leadership training organization with a wholistic model of training leaders of high influence to bring a positive transformation in every segment of society. We focus on 3 main areas of development – personal and character development, leadership development and professional skills development.
Leaders in society enroll for a specific program that addresses their profession. Registration is managed by the local project-leader or through our online enrolment process.
Training events are not full time. EMIT hosts two training events per year; each event lasts between two to five days (depending on vocation). Programs are usually between one and four years depending on the program.
EMIT expects all students to multiply their knowledge and skills by mentoring at least 10 other leaders with whom they connect for the duration of their training.
Graduation and Certification
After completion of the vocation specific curriculum, students graduate with a certificate.
Training models differ from program to program. The four main models used are a) big group training events, b) small group training events, c) On-line training events, or d) a combination of the first three.
More than 90% of all training and facilitating is done by indigenous leadership. The balance of the training is done by the Adjunct International Faculty.
