I. Summarize participants’ evaluations, and how their feedback resulted in new learning or growth for you this past year.:
Evaluations have been very positive. My main learning is that different folks benefit from different ways of presenting so I use a bigger and bigger variety. Physical movement, art, visuals, think time, extreme examples, everyday examples, demonstrating, didactic presentations, and more.
J. What are your current growing edges or challenges as a trainer that you will be working on in the future?:
To limit the size of some workshops for more individualized learning. Another option would be to have more assistants.
K. If you found opportunities to work with other trainers this year, please share the most meaningful experiences for you.:
I love working with other trainers and have not done it as much as I like. This year I worked with Holley and with Fred both of whom I hope to work with more. The most meaningful experience was watching them make magic happen, at least that is how it felt to the participants who were receiving the empathy and those watching.
