COHORT 11A : Session 2 Assignments: 1). Survey  > 2). Facilitate Circle  > 3). Buddy Call  > 4). How To 


Here are assignments to do before the next Session

1. Fill Out Session Feedback Survey   


Please submit feedback regarding the Empathy Circle Facilitator Training Session that you have just completed, including feedback on Session structure, content, and instructors.

2. Hold an Empathy Circle with Family or Friends.

Try to facilitate an Empathy Circle with family, friends, etc. before the next Session. You just need to find 3 more participants. Sometimes it is hard to get them to take part. One way is to say you have this assignment for a workshop and it would be a big help to you if they took part.

> Report back at the next Session how it went?

Share your approach for getting participants to take part and any challenges.

3. Empathy Buddy Call.

Your Empathy Buddy Call: Facilitator Community and Mutual Support 

For more on support see, http://j.mp/EmpathyBuddy

Part of being an Empathy Circle facilitator is to be part of a community and to have mutual support with other facilitators. You can support each other when you host Empathy Circles, Cafes, and other projects. As a facilitator, it is important to have as much personal support as possible.

We have paired you up with someone else in the training Cohort. (Every week we will pair you with a different participant.) Between now and the next Session, connect (email) with that person. Schedule a 30 minute mutual support call on Zoom or Skype, etc.  Feel free to do it longer if you have the time and inclination. (If scheduling doesn’t work for this time, don’t worry about it. Just do your best.)

In the call:

Person 1 gets 15 minutes to talk about their experience in the training while Person 2 empathically listens.

Talk about:

Then switch roles and Person 2 talks for 15 minutes and Person 1 empathically listens.
