Most of the time people who come to your workshops and classes are exited to be there.
They’re grateful to be learning what you have to share and engage with and enjoy the whole process.
And sometimes there’s one person who’s not excited to be learning what you’ve got to share.
Here are my top 4 tips for what to do when this happens.
- Pre-frame the whole class at the beginning by saying something like: Would it be Ok with Everyone here if we put to one side, just for this class, all the preconceived ideas, thoughts, feelings and emotions that you may have had about this subject before this class.
- Gently point out to them what they’re doing – they may not be aware of the energy that they’re creating with their point of view.
- Ask them questions: “What’s really going on here?” “Is there something that’s come up for you that you would like to clear?” Change can be uncomfortable and it could simply be that they’re uncomfortable with the level of change they perceive is possible for them with this class.
- Let them know that it’s OK for them to leave. Your class or workshop is not for everyone. Give them permission to leave with ease and full refund.
I love facilitating Access Consciousness Classes: whether it’s an Access Bars Class or an Access Energetic Facelift Class or an evening or online class.
The level of change that is available for people to choose in these classes is tremendous.
And that in itself can be confronting. It can feel challenging. And when someone is challenged out of their comfort zone, they can start throwing their toys out of the pram!
Don’t let that put you off.
Teach your class the way you desire to teach it. If someone is being so disruptive that it’s impacting on other people’s enjoyment, take control. After all, it’s your class!
I hope this gives you some more ideas on what to do when you are teaching a class or workshop and you’ve got a negative person in your class.
