Training Philosophy

Educating people is a very strong part of the life Tanyimor Foundation Inc and its stakeholders,  partners and sponsors and this enables the organization to expose participants to current events, be research-oriented, learn new ideas, and broaden their horizons in the understanding of national and international issues.

            We believe that teaching should be an active rather than a passive activity and we work to produce a setting in which customer-generated discussions and learning can take place. We strongly feel that it incumbent upon those delivering services to generate an atmosphere where participants can easily transform theories and concepts in practical activities, be optimistic about life, be visionary and foresighted and strategically plan for posterity.

            Being advocates of free-spirited thinking and actions we try to convey the message to customers in a very democratic and open atmosphere. We feel that in order disseminate information to customers in a more effective and efficient manner most of our seminars, workshops and conferences are customized to incorporate role-plays and simulations as close to real life situations as much as possible especially in business management courses. We use state-of-the-art facilities and educational techniques for instruction. Participants learn by listening, seeing and interacting in groups and other activities as well as gain from feedback from their peers and the facilitator or trainer.
