“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

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:
  1. Be real, trusting, empathic
  2. Take risks
  3. Leave spaces in presentations for feedback, say at the start
  4. Say how you are feeling – if you are feeling nervous, passionate, emotional
  5. Show how you are feeling – laugh, cry...
  6. Dance if you wish
