You facilitated the Common Humanity Stories, excellently. see below
@Video: I appreciated a lot that you asked the group to pretend to be a subject of the “All that we are” video. However, you could have used more invitational language here, too.
@ Wrap-up: Wonderful wrap-up, in particular when pondering on identities and identification.
o After Jeanne shares, gives recommendation and tells group to do the who are you activity many times (advice; expert approach); teaches group about the importance of names and where names come from (“we take on and embody the name that is given, in the US we see distortion of names…, this may be one of the most harmful techniques we can do, you may want to explore importance of your name to you.” ; encourages the group to go through CJ questions and practice grounding, etc.

Anja: You facilitated the Common Humanity Stories, excellently. You had an amazing approach to this activity. The sequence of the activity which can be complicated were explained so clearly and very engaging. You focused on the core of the activity. Instead of coming up with common humanity stories in the breakout groups you facilitated the activity very succinctly and nicely in the main room by describing several of the people and focused on the questions, the tracking and the internal development. You revealed the power of personalization. This has been outstanding.

Anja: I can repeat what I have said in earlier feedbacks: Your very natural, professional and inspiring way of facilitation has been outstanding. You were great at monitoring the group and the chat at the same time, picking up the needs here, allowing space for participants and expressing great teamwork regarding your co-facilitators. You clearly have an amazing knowledge of the concepts of skill 5. This has been an authentic session thanks to all three of you.

I recommend, to have a look at the recording though and check the sound. I suspect that your notes were hitting the in-built microphone of your laptop which caused a loud sound.
Also, but this is me personally, even though the video “All that we are” might have been more diverse regarding the participants, I sort of preferred the Danish version “All that we share” as it still displays a very diverse group on a different level and due to the close ups and the less distant camera, one really feels part of it and I felt very much impacted by that.
Finally, you as a team decided to have a very active chat and had amazing and deep discussions here which for my taste distracted from the facilitation. It might be better to integrate that into the general group discussion. We want to be inclusive yet not invite competing discussions between the facilitators.
