Judie and her co-facilitator did a great job of this from moment one. She was welcoming, warm, friendly and invited folks to engage.
Using the power point slides as a guide to the content is important as it helps to keep the facilitator on target. The slides also help participants better understand the concepts and material as they can put words together with pictures in many cases for a better grasp of the material. Don't be afraid to use the slides as a reference point to keep you focused and on point.
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.
You were much more comfortable and organized this time around and it was evident in your facilitation. Kudos.
You invited conversation when you started impartiality which was great. Try to start by inviting conversation from participants before jumping in to definitions.
Try to avoid totalizing language. We don't want to say "All millennials..." because inevitably we find one who doesn't fit that mold so we try to avoid that language.
