The recognition of the participants when they provided thoughts, comments, stories, experiences, or feedback was excellent. Individual recognition is important to help all participants feel like they are contributing members of the group.
The slides were used in a very appropriate manner to help facilitate conversation and keep the session moving the way it was intended. The slides were used to enhance dialogue and conversation and help participants understand the concepts by putting words and pictures together for greater understanding.
Your tone of voice and thoughtful manner of speaking was wonderful. You allowed space for those who don't like to interject to feel comfortable to do so. Your personalization of the slide for harmful mental state was well done and made you feel more human and allowed the participants the ability to connect with you on a different level. The comments to not judge whether or not something was harmful or beneficial, rather just observe it was helpful. As was the statement that we aren't trying to get rid of the spark.
Monitoring time is a skill that will come with time and practice. Every group is different and will take some practice to figure out what information can be shortened or how a session can be modified depending on the "talkative" nature of the participants.
