There is no “I” in Team

N-ACT Group Management Training

Nineteen people from six area villages took part in a group management training to help define current status of tourism in their village and learn how to work in a team. Expert facilitation was provided by Mangrove Action Project, with support from the Ecumenical Coalition on Tourism.

Villagers from the North Andaman Region came together for three days in June with one common goal: to learn how to most effectively manage their CBT programs. The first day of the training allowed for everyone to get to know each other, understand each other’s communities and individual CBT programs. The villagers who participated in the training at Kuraburi Resort are from Tung Dap, Ban Talae Nok, Ton Kloy, Ban Na, Ban Lion, and Had Phrapat.

Bodhi Garrett, founder of N-ACT and Andaman Discoveries, kicked off the meeting by stating, “Think of your CBT — where it is now and where you want it to go.” Participants learned how to work in a team and manage meetings. Nattaya “Nat” Sektheera, N-ACT program manager, said, “Villagers departed the training, confident, with new knowledge and an understanding of how to manage a meeting within their CBT programs.”
