Deltas • Two out of nineteen participants expressed that we were socially constricting as facilitators • One comment said “I think SOLC could find a more effective way to gain control/respect of the group” • During facilitator debriefing we discussed more ways to approach getting and keeping a groups attention in an appropriate and effective manner.
Personal Reflection • I think this was a great retreat for me to shadow. Considering that I had no prior experience to this retreat I was able to observe how high level energy a particular group can be, and now that I had seen how different group’s energy levels are I can match my energy level with the group. • Although this was my first time shadowing at a retreat I believe I could had done more to participate and engage the group by simply asking the group to abide by the rules.
