The Secret Sauce of Asian Access?

Some time ago I was asked about the secret sauce of Asian Access… I’ve written previously about this on other blogs:

A2 Leader Development ModelThat said, the other secret sauce corresponds to a question that I am frequently asked, "What is your curriculum?". While we do have a curricular model, the most powerful part of Asian Access learning is actually the learning community.

 

Nurturing a Thriving Learning Community

Leaders with potential, not potential leaders, learn more from one another than they do from any particular content or lecturer. In fact, our faculty are at their best when they are facilitators of this communal learning. The leaders in our cohorts already have the experience and as the faculty members light the matches, the conversations ignite! They learn from one another and they form a community bond that is quite powerful. Some call them bands of brothers.

Here’s our description of these vibrant learning communities:

We create dynamic, total learning environments that are in-country, in-service, in-community, intensive, and ongoing. Asian Access is also committed to helping them develop tools, tactics, resources, and strategies for equipping the churches and movements they lead.

As the leader of the Drucker Academy in Hong Kong once shared with me,

“Joe, Asian Access is like Ashoka. No other leader development effort that I’m aware of has the power of the alumni networks that Ashoka and Asian Access have.” 

He told me that Ashoka was the single most influential social enterprise network in the world! What a powerful endorsement of Asian Access!

As these secret sauces come together, powerful things emerge! Living in a Love Relationship with God coupled with Living in Vibrant Community together in dynamic Learning Cohorts leads to remarkable movements of God. The stories you hear us share at Asian Access trace back to these ‘secret sauces’ and most important to them all is a deep, abiding relationship with Christ.

As we abide in Him, we will bear much fruit!
