Lead My Way Organization has a ’21 Steps’ training project. Symbolically named ’21 Steps’ as a nod to this multi-step path to healing, the program will coach survivors in three core areas:
—– Life skills, coping skills, and self confidence
—– Personal enrichment and empowerment entrepreneurial & leadership training
—– Professional development and work readiness skills to encourage financial independence
Phase I – Life Skills
World Health Organization describes “Life skills” are defined as psychosocial abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life. They are loosely grouped into three broad categories of skills: cognitive skills for analyzing and using information, personal skills for developing personal agency and managing oneself, and inter-personal skills for communicating and interacting effectively with others.
We at Lead My Way, believe that a person or family going thru challenging emotionally difficult situation while facing domestic violence (physical, verbal or emotional) need to ‘gather’ themselves, be able to understand issue with clarity and make the right choices for themselves and their dependants. Many victims may need the life skills coaching and training who may be lacking confidence in their abilities to take actions and make decisions.
Phase II – Personal Enrichment and empowerment
Each individual has a varied degree of personal power and ability to persevere. It varies from cultures to individuals what they value most. One may see certain values as enriching life, when other may not place as high value to the same traits.
During the challenges phases of life, one’s ability to endure, grasp, and learn can rapidly change. It may also impede others. Our programs designed for personal enrichment and empowerment are focused on the need of violence victims.
Phase III – Professional Development for work readiness skills
One of the most important aspect of being free from abusive and violent relationship is to be financially independent. Records indicate that many DV victims stay in the abusive relationships due to financial dependency upon the abuser. Often, victims lack proper skills to seek work or employment that can help them sustain without any financial dependency of their abuser.
Our goals and objectives are to provide professional development training to the domestic violence victims for them to gain skills suitable for seeking employment, job readiness interview preparation and more. Our programs are designed to train with the skills needed at work places often known as secondary skills.
