Prejudice and distrust towards the trainers from the very start (due to their age, nationality, gender, etc.)

It would be strange if there weren’t any reservations on the part of the participants, so if it seems to you that there aren’t, it may be a good idea to discuss this very issue. The participants will not openly express their distrust – that is clear – but you will be able to feel it, and this is common in our work. As time goes by, your relationship towards individual participants will change, mature, undergo transformations, sometimes worsen, but in all likelihood, it will get significantly better than at the very start of the training. The participation of the training team in the exercises for getting to know each other and exchanging experiences is important precisely in order to give participants an opportunity to see and feel that the trainers bring their own dilemmas, backgrounds and fears to the workshop, which will bring everyone closer together.
