SkillSkill 9: Appreciating Interdependence
How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

It is more difficult for the co-facilitator(s) who don't open the session to explicitly demonstrate setting the conditions for a safe space; however, you did well implicitly setting up a safe space by going first to participants with introducing new slides/material. This "reads" as a welcome for all opinions and perspectives, as does offering affirming feedback to participant input (which you demonstrated very well).

How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.

Very well, particularly with the Direct, Structural, and Cultural Violence slide. Going to group first for each segment demonstrated appropriate role of facilitator in engaging participants in the material and reinforced the safe space. Used CIT appropriate explanations and amplification of concepts, including using participant input for segue into next topic.

How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

How well did the facilitator lead the Mindful Dialogues and Reflective Writing Exercises in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.

As always, demonstrated knowledge of and facility with the material and, in this session, particularly in developing the iceberg metaphor as each concept unfolds. Graciously worked with a co-facilitator who shared less than an equitable amount of air. And again as always, creates a safe, comfortable and inclusive atmosphere for participants.

How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.

NA

What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.

Seemed to have less the full familiarity with the slide deck, being caught by surprise and seemingly unfamiliar with one slide. However, saying so with honesty and transparency, also added to the sense of safety for all in the session space. (And considering Michael pulled up a different version, we all had some shared compassion).
