Arun, Bala and I were part of the organizing team and PC (Practitioner Coaches) who were holding tables and conducting follow up traids. As part of the administration I took up the accountability for preparing the handouts and of breakfast of the team holding the event.
I was holding a table as a PC (Practioner Caoch). This gave me an opportunity to practice my role as a PC as distinguished from a coach as I gave examples from my life to illustrate the tools and distinctions. In giving these examples I was also able to notice gaps in my actions. It also gave me an opportunity to improve my Tamil writing skills. I was able to write in Tamil for the participants who were not able to write.
During the CFSR(Conscious Full Spectrum) tool, I shared my project in the stage which helped me to make my project more clearer. I also found a partner there from the audience with whom I could work because she was also doing the same kind of project. My project was one Lets Talk Trash- A team of Auroville youth cleaning and creating awareness in and around Auroville.
I was also given the opportunity to practice feedback for growth (as distinguished from diminishing feedback or advice) to each participant in my group when we did Speaking Powerfully exercise.
- I was able to notice my what was missing in my actions and worked toward filling the missing actions.
- I noticed that I was assertive while handling the table.
- I made sure that what I did was for the growth and exploration for others.
- Most of the participants in my team were able to speak powerfully during the the Speaking Powerfully exercise in my group.
- I was in integrity in attending the workshop.
I need to practice, practice, practice.
