I gave my first ever Action! workshop yesterday to a larger group than I’d expected. Overall, I felt it went well. I didn’t babble too much (which, frankly, I’m prone to doing) and managed to get through my planned hour’s-worth of material in an hour. Afterward, the attendees said they got a lot of good, useful information out of it and I hope that they feel they learned something.
Things for me to work on:
- Slowing down! There’s a lot of information to cover but I don’t have to talk really fast to get it all out!
- Pausing for questions! It doesn’t do any good to ask if there are questions, wait three seconds, then plunge onward!
- Figure out what that white board is for! And when I do, try to write more neatly on it.
The next Action! workshop that’s been scheduled is in January.
