2. Review Course Time Commitment
Before taking the training, we would like you to be aware of the time commitment involved.
Please commit to the times. If you can't, let me know.
Here is the Time Commitment
2.5 hrs. Session per week for 5 Weeks. We ask that you commit to attending all 5 Sessions.
30+ min. per week: Empathy Buddy Call - Do your best to hold a 30 min call with one fellow participant per week to practice mutual empathic listening and support. It will take a bit of time for you to schedule these calls as well. We will match you up with a different participant each week.
1+ hrs. per week: Facilitate an Empathy Circle: Optional - try your best to host and facilitate an Empathy Circle with family, friends, coworkers, between Sessions. You will report back your experiences and learnings.
There is limited space in each cohort and we usually have a wait list. Be aware that you are taking a spot that someone else could have had. We have a fixed ratio of trainers/trainees to participants. ie. 1 trainer to 3 participants. if you do not attend it impacts the group by throwing off the group size and timings.
Emergences can come up and we have understanding for that. i.e., family, heath, work, etc. issues. Do your best to hold your time commitment and agreement. Let us know if something comes up so we can plan.
