All this training was missing is a HUG button. I felt like I understood my work family in a totally different light. The degree in which we all allow our vulnerabilities a spotlight was incredible.
I really liked that there were multiple ways to react via chat, voice, breakouts, and menti. That made it engaging and gave us an opportunity to all share in ways we felt comfortable. The facilitator’s voice was so welcoming and soothing, I also liked that nothing felt forced–sharing or turning on the cameras–I think this made people feel comfortable to open up and be vulnerable because it didn’t feel required. Diane a great job of making people’s voices feel heard and respecting people’s learning and sharing styles.
For the 1st time in my life, I was able to share one of my biggest previous workplace traumas in a group setting… it was healing for me as I realized it no longer came from a place of pain but rather from an experience while in the healing process and acceptance of my invisible disabilities. Thank you all for the safe space provided.
