SkillSkill 5: Impartiality and Common Humanity
How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.

Ashyia, you did a wonderful job in creating a safe space by giving the group a warm welcome, introducing the whole team, asking open questions and taking care of those in a warm and thoughtful way. You were listening closely, paraphrased the replies and resonated with the participants' replies and comments.

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

You contextualized the content perfectly by elucidating the structure of the programme. The way you did that, namely by asking a question was wonderfully engaging and it was a perfect segway to checking-in. The easiness of your dialogue with the group was very professional.

You were aware of triggers and dealt with the material carefully. Mentioning the Implicit bias test was a plus. Just be aware that this has come under some scrutiny lately and should be taken with a grain of salt.

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

You did a great job in facilitating the activity 'Hi- Who are you?' by revealing some beautiful observations on the activity. Please remember to discuss labeling here a bit, though after the activity. We don't want to give too much away before the activity begins.

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.

The easiness of dialogue between you and the group/individuals has been amazing. Time-management has been great and you have been carfeful with other facilitator's time. Teamwork has been amazing.

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

Your short introductory calming practice 'attention for today' was a beautiful idea, created a pleasant and relaxed, yet awake atmosphere right at the beginning and it was nicely facilitated.

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

Being a teacher you might want to be careful with facilitating, rather than teaching. CITs' content needs sometimes more space than other material so that the participants can apply and achieve their own personal aha-moments. This might be particularly challenging when facilitating CIT to kids/the own students.

Do you recommend this facilitator to become certified?Yes
