|How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.|
Very well. Respectful and courteous treatment of co-facilitator during intros contributes to a sense of safety for all. Inviting group participation in the check-in also inspires a sense of safety and welcome. In general, you are able to create a welcoming, safe presence.
|How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.|
Very well, especially in using opening "salvo" to demonstrate learning from your CE feedback regarding compassion as a motivation, not an action.
|How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
Fairly well. It is difficult to do in this setting and a demonstration of what you would say to a group before breaking out. Some of your introduction to the breakout seemed more focused on instructing your co-facilitators how to do it. Overall, gave a sense of how the exercise would be carried out.
|How well did the facilitator lead the Mindful Dialogues and Reflective Writing Exercises in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
|What aspects of this Skill did you think the facilitator did exceptionally well? Please give examples.|
Great opening, concise recap of previous week's work, and remembering to go ti group for their experiences relative to systems.
|How well did the facilitator lead the Contemplative Practice in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
|What aspects of this Skill could the facilitator improve? Please give examples.|
Could have been more responsive or affirming of group input in favor of taking more time to share your own insights, although your insights were relevant and CIT-consistent (which can also be a way of affirming any similar experience that group members may have also had). The sense of safety may have been compromised a bit by introducing a slide with the statement that a co-facilitator would be covering that content, and then covering the initial content yourself before going to your co-facilitator. As is true for most of us, there is often more to learn about how to make sessions more about participants than ourselves.
