Kristin Luana did a great job of this from moment one. She was welcoming and warm and made people feel part of the group. Great presence with 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.
The recognition of the participants when they provided thoughts, comments, stories, experiences, or feedback was excellent. That also helped to create the safe space mentioned above. Individual recognition is important to help all participants feel like they are contributing members of the group.
Great example when you used your hands to demonstrate that "space gives you power to choose". That was quite helpful. Your differentiation of critique and blame was very helpful as well.
Paraphrased Margarida's comments very well! That is a hard skill to master.
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.
Try to facilitate more rather than lecture or be instructive. We want folks to come to their own conclusions about the material. Ask questions of the participants to help draw out their thoughts and impressions.
