How to Run Carpet Work More Quickly, Lesson 2: Using a “Carpet Work Clock”

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

The single most important tool that I use for going faster on the carpet is the “carpet work clock.”

In this video I cover:

  • How to use a carpet work clock to focus the participants on doing their work,
  • How to actually USE the clock during facilitation, rather than just “having it up on the wall,”
  • How to keep the process moving to “keep up” with the clock,
  • The carpet work process “milestones,” and how to use the clock to make sure you hit those “milestones” on time, and
  • [bonus!] How I keep track of the DAY as a WHOLE in a way that keeps the entire experience on track and moving forward.

Facilitator’s Club – How to Handle Humor on the Carpet

Sometimes participants are genuinely funny… even when they are sharing about profoundly upsetting experiences.

The group may start laughing a lot, and it can be confusing — how are you supposed to facilitate a truly healing process with all this laughing going on?

Many facilitators mis-handle this situation… but there IS a way to handle it well, so it

  • grounds the process,
  • builds the participant’s trust in the process, and
  • moves the process forward.

In this three-and-a-half minute video, I share with you exactly how to handle humor on the carpet.

I hope you enjoy it.

 

Facilitator’s club – Starting the Process from the participant’s LONGING

It’s possible to use all the right facilitation tools, in the right ways, but still be working on the wrong¬†information.

I see it all the time. You have to start the process with the right information, so you move in the right direction. Otherwise you are working, but not on the participant’s actual issue. And that’ll make things tough.

In this video I show you how to find the participant’s real, deepest longings — which they probably will not¬†present to you automatically — so you can go the right direction and have the process seem to run itself.
