SkillSkill 10: Engaging with Descernment
How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

This is a bit more difficult to do for co-facilitators who do the "interior" sections of the presentation. To speak in metaphor, you did a good job of "catching the baton" even though it looked like the runner before you may have gone a bit further along the track than expected. Even though you used the potential "hot button" topic of fake news to illustrate the idea of how we engage with systems, your approach and examples were well-balanced and safe. Engaged group first in most instances, creating the safety of communicating that all input is welcome.

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

Relatively well. On Epistemic Humility slide, good job referring to earlier input from a participant; could have gone to group first, but did a good job of engaging the group in highly generative contribution. This was your best moment in engaging participants by inviting their input and providing the space for it.

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

It seems like a small thing, but knowing exactly which page an exercise is on is a basic service and sign of preparation that many of our facilitators (and myself) have overlooked.

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 above, the Epistemic Humility slide in which you invited input from the group was most effective in engaging the group (which is very helpful for us all to remember how how often that is the case).

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.

Became very engaged and effecting in sharing the Veil of Ignorance once your rhythm was regained. On elephant slide, needed a bit more setup and recap of what happened when all the blind men came back together to describe an elephant and their perceptions has all be so different. Also would have been helpful to go back to group for their input rather than let things trail off into silence.
