|How well did the facilitator lead the group and create a safe space? Please explain and give examples.|
Charlie did a nice recap of the series I and series II skills and how they connected to the skills in series III. This was a great way to set the tone for the session. Asking about how the practices were going for the group also helped to set the stage for the session.
|How well did the facilitator explain this Skill using the PowerPoint presentation? Please give examples.|
Charlie used the slides to reinforce the talking points and as a support and did not rely on the slides to tell the whole story.
|How well did the facilitator explain and lead the activities in this Skill? Please explain and give specific examples.|
|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.|
Charlie does a great job of acknowledging and recognizing the responses of the participants and making them feel their contributions are important (which they are!). Recapping the series I and II skills to establish how they connect to series III not only helped set the stage for the session but also helped to reinforce the importance of the connections between all of the skills.
|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.|
Facilitating online is a challenge. Be sure to give participants some time to process and think before moving on from one concept to another. When you ask a question, allow more time than you think is appropriate for the participants to answer.
