The shortage of public health professionals and healthcare providers is a global crisis. This well-known shortage of health professionals who are qualified to meet the current and future health demands of an intrinsically diversely connected world must be addressed immediately. Because of the varied health disparities, emerging infectious diseases, health crisis and deteriorating health systems, it is even more imperative that health professionals acquire, develop and strengthen basic skills for competencies and aptitudes that are essential for public health practice. Possessing these skills and the capacity to effectively apply them in their daily lives will enable health professionals to successfully respond to emerging health crisis in their communities.

Cultural Competence and Communication

TEAM BUILDING AND EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Global public health and international development organizations understand that the success of their organization and employer brand largely relies on one critical factor: the synergy and performance of their workforce and the various working teams.  However, socially responsible, forward-thinking, and innovative organizations require the “know-how” to build long lasting diverse multinational teams.  

UBUNTU uses the South African UBUNTU philosophy of human interconnectness principles in order to increase organization’s leaders and employees’ positive attitudes and behaviors leading to improved organization and business performance outcomes.  We facilitate innovative and dynamic team building activities and trainings to motivate leadership teams, employees, and career professionals to work together, to develop their strengths, and to address any weaknesses. These trainings help improve communication, increase trust, increase collaboration, improve productivity, encourage creativity, and further positive reinforcement. As a result, our global public health and international development organizations clients have high-performing teams contributing considerably to the overall improved productivity, reduced operational costs, as well as satisfied and strong advocates for their employers.       

UBUNTU’s transformational training use intentional, dynamic, and intrinsically motivated approaches.   We help them achieve their career goals and missions because of their requirement to work, learn, and ensure health positive outcomes.  Our team building and employee engagement training services provide career professionals of global health and international development organizations team building skills and employee engagement competencies in order to build strong, diverse, inclusive and high performing and producing teams.

What do our clients say about us?

"I worked with Hermence during the Ebola crisis in Guinea. While Peace Corps Volunteers had been evacuated from Guinea, our staff remained in place and an interagency agreement was signed to support the CDC. Hermence came to Guinea and helped lead training with WHO for contact tracing team supervisors and health workers in Conakry using her excellent French language skills. This training focused on risk communication skills to negotiate positive citizen cooperation. Pre and post-tests showed strong positive results, and participants reported essential work benefits. In sum, Hermence is a dynamic and effective trainer!”

I have been really impressed by uBuntu’s ability to lead programs. uBuntu used role play, team exercises, and practical examples to emphasize key messages in the sessions. Hermence, the CEO, served as our Atlanta based supervisor during my STOP mission in Haiti. Within this position she conducted a site visit in Haiti where she organized a 2 day workshop to reinforce surveillance capacity of national staff. This meeting brought together key implementing partners on disease surveillance activities such as CDC, WHO, and national priority programs on epidemic prone diseases. Once again Hermence demonstrated her passion for effective communication and skills acquisition in Public Health. As a result, Haitian national health and surveillance workforce was
transformed for the better.

" Hermence has a strong leadership and supervisory skills by providing staff under her supervision with specific direction and responsibilities as well as development and mentoring opportunities.
