Training Corporate Outsiders: Doing It the Cape Breton Way.
Rolls, Judith A.
This report provides culture-specific information about Cape Breton Island in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada, and describes a communication skills training model that complements its cultural foundation. Data in the report are based on the researcher's experience, on interviews with several trainers and directors of training, and on the literature. The report notes that because Cape Breton is essentially a working class area some of the training strategies might also be applied to other working class venues with similar values. Divided into two sections, the report's first part is an analysis of Cape Breton's cultural uniqueness, while the second part contains a brief overview of an experiential learning model that has been used successfully within the values and biases of the Cape Breton culture. Next are specific examples of trainer characteristics and facilitation strategies that foster successful communication workshops. The report points out that the experiential learning lab model is based on a model used in the Department of Communication at the University College of Cape Breton. (Contains 17 references.) (NKA)
