Person-Centred Everything: Presentations
Because person-centredness is not a set of rules or techniques, but a way of being, then, as Carl Rogers pointed out, the approach can be 'applied' to, well, everything. Here's how a person-centred presentation might look (might? HAS looked - I've seen person-centred presenters overcome with emotion, and saw a presenter start dancing), showing more of the extent and variety of person-centredness:
- Be real, trusting, empathic
- Take risks
- Leave spaces in presentations for feedback, say at the start
- Say how you are feeling – if you are feeling nervous, passionate, emotional
- Show how you are feeling – laugh, cry...
- Dance if you wish
