I. Summarize participants’ evaluations, and how their feedback resulted in new learning or growth for you this past year.:
Very positive feedback on my models, clarity and understanding of what i teach. Fun, interactive and engaging. Always more to learn on how to make a workshop flow, especially when using a course handbook, so that I keep a combination of live flexibility in the moment, and elegant use of the resources.
J. What are your current growing edges or challenges as a trainer that you will be working on in the future?:
Increasing confidence and assuredness as I meet a new group, trusting in my own experience of the NVC process, without needing to have people agree with it; acknowledging any response as coming from a person's own experience of 'where they are now' and respecting their views as part of their whole experience. With the ever-increasing ability to empathise with others, whatever their view, comes a greater confidence and acceptance that I - and the world - can hold contradictions and opposites as a natural part of how things are.
K. If you found opportunities to work with other trainers this year, please share the most meaningful experiences for you.:
My co-trainer and I had a wonderfully rich time looking into our own communication. This meant we were living and breathing the NVC process together, and are able to come even more fully from our experience when we assure people that it is possible to connect and re-connect, even in difficult and painful moments.
