The 27th and 28th finally came around and I must say the coping skills program was a blast. Whilst we kept the number of delegates to a fairly small size – 15 delegates of which 10 delegates were from 3 organizations while the balance 5 were he sole attendees from their respective organizations.
It was fun because there was lots of learning opportunities and sharing. In fact, it felt somewhat like and “in house” program because we were able to get everyone involved at quite a detailed level.
I thought the 2nd day afternoon was very interesting cause it allowed the delegates to play consultants and to consults each other based on what they had learned. I was impressed with the delegates ability to so quickly absorb the learnings and converts it into problem solving.
We thank all 15 delegates for making it so much fun and to SMPP for organizing the program. Also to Reinier for his juggling and systems thinking and Dr. Elisabeth for her interesting work on colors and paradigms.
We were so engrossed with the program that we forgot to take loads of pictures, but the few we have can be viewed here….
