This week we worked with “Powerful Speaking” a tool from the Stewardship for New Emergence program. It was new for some of us in the team. Everyone shared for about three minutes on what they want to accomplish in the upcoming year. We used the conscious full spectrum to fill what and how to accomplish. I wanted to work on the EBD (Education By Design) more, learn from it and to be able to do EBDs with children.
Once each person shared we gave feedback to them. I learnt how to give feedback to others and learned to distinguish it from advice. The format of the feedback we used was ‘retain’, ‘increase’ and ‘decrease’ on what the person spoke supporting them to speak again the next time, possibly to a different forum. From this tool, I learnt how to come up and speak to the team and learnt to be specific on the committed requests I make.
