1. We want to reflect together on the presentation we heard this morning. Have you ever asked two of your colleagues who are quarreling, "What is happening here?" Perhaps, like me, you find that they have totally different perspectives on events that were in fact the same. This is why we'll take a few minutes here to talk through what we have just heard.
1. (Go around the table) What was one point you remember from the presentation?
2. What images or stories or illustrations do you remember?
3. What ideas or similar techniques have you heard of before?
4. What was completely new for you?
5. What do you find most useful about the method being described here?
6. When might you use it in your work?
7. If you were going to use this what would you have to do to do that?
1. Are there any more questions?
Follow-Up Required: none
