What I have learned from the Istanbul Global TOT: How do we contribute to visibilising women’s invisible work

My H.I.P. Experience in Malaysia

Posted on 23 May 2012 by

Ringing sounds of laughter and fun filled the learning environment at the WLP Malaysia/AWAM, National Training of Trainers (N-TOT) in Malaysia. This is the most relaxed and sisterly meeting place I had ever been in the world! The togetherness, warmness, cooperation and respect among Malaysian sisters is really commendable. The energizers from Suraya got me thinking… very enriching and entertaining and took tiredness off the bones.

The secret of the fun and facilitation skills-building sessions…? Hmmm….using the H.I.P principles!!!! “What’s H.I.P.,” did you ask? I’ll tell you, it’s horizontal, inclusive and participatory leadership process…. so eaaasssy! The process was all HIP!!!  from the point of introduction, facilitation, group discussions, etc… the HIP goes on.

Betty shared a little progressive secret with me…and with her consent I am going to share. She informed me of the great success she recorded with the HIP principles during a training session at the Sunway University, Malaysia. Can you believe after session, because of her facilitation techniques, other lecturers commended her for the very impressive participatory approach? The next day Betty saw me, the first thing she excitedly informed me was, “I tried out the horizontal participatory facilitation skills and it worked!” I was stunned and excited, and wished I had been there to experience her happy moment.

Ok, back to the N-TOT – hmm Samah… Samah is such a sweet darling and in-fact a valuable facilitator for WLP. I had never met her before Malaysian N-TOT but the first time I met her she was on my bed sleeping away peacefully.  I was confused but pleased to see she arrived Malaysia safely. Wao!  Samah is NICE personified! She is calm, friendly and willing to learn. In-fact I love WLP’s approach of putting facilitators from diverse background, cultures, languages, etc. such as me from Nigeria, Sindi from the Caribbean Island, Samah from Egypt and AWAM’s facilitators from Malaysia. Without announcing it to each other, we collectively shared a vision under the WLP training methodology and fitted into the roles as though we already rehearsed….

The enthusiasm to participate in team work gave a positive spirit to the training. The lead facilitators had a great role in guiding their co-facilitators for each session and guess what we have about 2 “newbies” with AWAM and some bold ones who tried out their facilitation skills.
