I. Summarize participants’ evaluations, and how their feedback resulted in new learning or growth for you this past year.:
I received a few requests for more support to meet physical needs – more comfortable chairs, and to include a break in my intros (which I have done).
Participants have been consistently very satisfied with the training and coaching support I have offered, finding unexpected new ways to get their needs met in relationship, thus experiencing deeper and more compassionate connection with people in their lives, and greater hope and trust in being able to resolve future conflicts.
Based not so much on their direct feedback, as in observing their choices over time, I am seeking ways to support ongoing practice in ways that will fit easily and naturally into their already very busy lives.
J. What are your current growing edges or challenges as a trainer that you will be working on in the future?:
I continue to seek ways to share NVC that are ever more enjoyable, fun and satisfying for me - as well as supportive for people who wish to learn it.
I have enjoyed starting to do more writing this year.
K. If you found opportunities to work with other trainers this year, please share the most meaningful experiences for you.:
This year I have chosen to invest more time in potentially difficult conversations with colleague trainers - seeking to ever more fully live the principles we share. "Walking the talk" is a very meaningful way for me to help to realize our vision.
