Our Core Beliefs


Kirsten’s theory of teaching and learning is straightforward. It relies solely on the principle that “anyone can teach any learner anything”—with a healthy dose of her Prep, Practice, and Pivot.


If it’s not engaging, it’s not working. “Humans don’t learn from dull.” The training you need should be the training you want.


The Rourke Training community is a safe space in which to learn and support each other. Leave prejudice and politics at the digital door.


We don’t lie. We don’t obfuscate. We believe in transparency. Presenting feedback will be kind but direct.


Feedback is key for us, our learners, our community, and our workers. Why? Because one of Kirsten’s must-haves upon building Rourke Training was ensuring that everyone spends as much time as possible living in between their zones of excellence and genius, “all holding the same shared vision,” and “giving each other grace.”


Rourke Training does not believe in allowing or propagating practices that discriminate on the basis of disability in its programs, services, activities, and employment practices.


We’ve all worked in places where the work was more important than the humans doing it. “Self-care is having enough respect for yourself and everyone else in the company that you ask for what you need, and help to provide what others need.”


“If we keep our perspective focused by research, then we’re always looking forward. And we’re always thinking about how we’re going to be modifying the work and improving the work. The work is never done.”
