Course Time Commitment

short URL: https://j.mp/3hzBPFS

Before taking the training, we ask you to commit to attending all of the 5 Sessions. If you cannot make all the Sessions do not sign up. Before taking the training, we would like you to be aware of the time commitment involved.

Here is the Time Commitment

  • 2.5 hrs. per week for 5 weeks. Course Sessions

  • 30+ min. per week: Empathy Buddy Call - Do your best to hold a minimum 30 minute call with one fellow participant per week to practice mutual empathic listening and facilitator mutual support. It will take a bit of time for you to schedule these calls as well. We will match you up with a different training 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.

  • 1+ hr. per course: Developing a Facilitator Challenge Report(s): Each participants will write up and process at least one Challenge Report.

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. If you do not show up you have also denied someone else a space.

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. Just do your best to hold the time commitment.

If some emergencies come up, be sure to update us as soon as possible. This helps our planning.
