From Cohort 9C S4: Lou
9.C.S4.01

Question:  If a challenger continues to interrupt and keep asking questions, or might offer no reflective responses as a listener.  

Name:  S3 Feedback
Date:   

Answer:  2 different problems. Someone that continues to interrupt and takes time. If the Facilitator can’t answer objections they can say “i’m spending a lot of time talking to you, if you’re not enjoying this you can step out and have a meeting later and talk about your issue. I want to make sure we respect everyone's time to participate in the circle. If this is not working for you that’s fine.; Stick with it or if you want to step out. That's fine.”

Someone does not want to reflect. As Facilitator you can make an assessment. Are they saying they don’t want to due to not feeling ready.capable? If that is ok then allow. Pick someone else to reflect.

If you sense they don’t want to because they don’t feel they should have to. No if you participate, you need to participate as listener and speaker. Don’t press. First time they say this, ask them questions. Do you now feel you can? Are you not ready? Do you want to see what it looks like?

Do not allow someone to stay without being a reflector as is part of participating.

Include reference to some of the values and benefits. Why do we do it the way we do it to help them  understand.





9.C.S4.02

Question:   Difficulty in keeping time whilst paying attention?
Name:  S3 Feedback
Date:   05.05.2021

Answer:  Use a device with audio so you don’t need to keep using attention to check. As you gain experience, you will develop a natural rhythm for the time period. Allow some flexibility to allow speakers who have not managed to express much, sometimes they can have another bit and if the reflector needs the time too if the speaker has been waiting for the reflector.

Question:  What if someone shares something vulnerable and the circle continues on but does not validate or empathize with it. How do you address that?
Name: Leslie, Mina, Cat
Date:   12.05.2021

Answer:  As the facilitator when it’s your turn to be the speaker, it's a good opportunity to apply the value of mutuality. This could be by showing acknowledgements and empathy for the person and to relate the participants' expressions together to bring the circle back together and tune them in.
