IFAL in CONVERSATION
Transcending the Role: Personal Transformation of Action Learning Facilitators
Rosetta (Rose) Pillay from South Africa will be in conversation with Yury Boshyk
22 September, 2021 at 13:00 -14.30 BST online (Zoom)
THIS FIRST INTRODUCTORY EVENT IS FREE
Please join us for the first ever “IFAL in Conversation” between Rosetta (Rose) Pillay from South Africa and IFAL Executive Member, Yury Boshyk about her experiences and new book. “Growing through Reflection. A Journal for Action Learning Facilitators” (2021).
Rose and Yury will be exploring Rose’s Action Learning journey, including the writing of her guided reflection journal for Action Learning facilitators.
In the introduction to her journal/book Rose has the following comments:
“Often we overlook those facilitators, mentors, coaches and advisors and teachers who extend themselves for the sake of our development, without considering their personal desire for the same. Therefore, this journal is designed to serve the self-mastery journey of Action Learning Facilitators. The aim is for you to feel energised and humbled by the process, while approaching the idea that your presence awakens learning in a space where stillness is your primary facilitation tool.”
The journal’s objective is “to capture the fullness of your experience as an Action Learning Facilitator" It addresses 10 themes: Resplendently you, An Inner ‘knowing’, Surrendering to the process, Respectful observer, Freedom through questions, Acknowledging greatness, Meaningful connectivity, A Pensive way of being, Rudiments of courage, Synchronised with purpose--and concludes with Beyond the set. For each theme there is a QR code to expand on the content, including personal activities for a deeper expression of Self as well as reflection questions.
