Leader Reflection and Planning

Make a time for individual reflection and discussion with your co-leader after the conclusion of the workshop. Consider these questions:

  • What worked well in today's workshop? How can these elements or approaches be repeated or amplified in the future?
  • What was most challenging? What could be done to make these parts easier or more effective?
  • At what points were participants most and least engaged?
  • Were all voices in the group heard?
  • Was the room set up in a way conducive to group functioning?
  • Did you have all the resources you needed?
  • Did you feel prepared for any pastoral issues that emerged in the course of the workshop? How did you—and the group—respond? Is there anything you would do differently?
  • Were your practical and spiritual preparation time adequate?
  • Are there opportunities for improvement and modification in advance of the next workshop?
