Principles for Facilitators
I Agree to:
- hold the space with the four questions and turnarounds, and use the questions effectively and appropriately.
- listen authentically to the thoughts, vulnerability, and self-awareness of my client and of myself.
- know that each person who comes to me is wise, and will find their own answers, the ones that are true for them.
- bring my client and myself back to the specific situation and one-liner any time they (or I) wander away from the questions; and to remind us that The Work stops working any time they (or I) move into “because,” “but,” justification, defense, or other topics.
- refrain from interfering with my client’s Work by teaching, pushing, or moving away from the four questions and turnarounds through advice or therapy.
- work with my own thoughts and Judge-Your-Neighbor Worksheets whenever I possibly can, by myself and/or with a facilitator.
- serve myself by sharing The Work with others.
