Meet a Few of Our Facilitators

Reflection Point works with dozens of facilitators all over the world, in multiple languages. They are college professors or seasoned professionals committed to inquiry-based learning and are skilled at using our methodology for participant-led conversation and discovery.
Laura Baudot
“Stories are all about encountering different points of view. I ask open ended questions that invite these ideas into the discussion. The moment of collaboration, the moment of human connection is transformative.”
Laura Baudot

Laura Baudot is Associate Professor of English & Associate Dean, Oberlin College. 

Michelle Hite
“I grew up with a front porch where people shared ideas. That’s what I’m trying to do – extend my front porch and create a space where people can share ideas. The whole point is just to build community around our thinking." 
Michelle Hite

Michelle Hite is English Professor & Director, Honors Program, Spelman College

Michelle Liu
"Stories offer so many gateways for exploring how we think of ourselves and connect to others. As a Reflection Point facilitator, I enjoy working with participants to choose which gateways they’d like to enter and making space to surprise ourselves about what we share." 
Michelle Liu

Michelle Liu is Associate Director of Writing programs at The University of Washington. 

James Peterson
“Reflection Point offers all of the possibilities for advancing empathy and our understanding of the human condition. We read. We discuss. We reflect. The only rule: every voice matters.”
James Peterson

Babak Elahi
"Reflection Point is like playing jazz. It’s about listening to the music, picking up other people’s melodies. It’s about supporting the song rather than the solo."
Babak Elahi

Babak is the Department Head of Liberal Studies at Kettering University in Flint, Michigan.

Janaka Lewis
"Reflection Point is a valuable space for discussing the questions that don’t have a single answer. A favorite: 'How do you know when to share your truths, and with whom?’"
Janaka Lewis

Janaka is a professor of African American literature at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte.


I Listen Better Now...

A group at an urban medical center read Isabel Wilkerson’s The Warmth of Other Suns. One participant, who grew up in a rural environment, shared that he had never heard of Jim Crow. His colleague was shocked. “You know, she looked at me and said, ‘Did you grow up under a rock?’ I said, ‘Yeah. I did.’ So we got into a discussion... I’ve never been a prejudiced person, but it’s allowed me an even deeper understanding of the people I speak with now.”

Stories open minds and flip perspectives.

Reflection Point uses hundreds of different stories, and we choose the ones that unearth the right themes and discussions for your organization.

When we bring colleagues together to share perspectives and reflect on powerful stories, we start conversations we wouldn't otherwise have. We melt hierarchies and level the playing field. We kickstart connection, relationships, and, ultimately, help teams work better together.
Engage Your Team
“The Color Master”
by Aimee Bender
Growing in role, an apprentice to an expert color master meets a difficult set of orders from an important customer. The story elegantly explores client service, examining mentorship, succession, mastery and the struggle to achieve excellence in the face of emotional and ethical challenges.
"Good Hunting"
by Ken Liu
A young Chinese man befriends a mythical female creature that his family has hunted for generations. As westerners bring new technology, magic disappears and their friendship is tested. This story tees up conversation about making connections with people who are very different from us, how we are transformed by our relationships, and what it means to adapt during times of great change.
“Dead Men's Path”
by Chinua Achebe
An eager new schoolmaster seeking to modernize his village school refuses to permit villagers to use an ancestral path on the school grounds. This story encourages conversation about the push and pull between tradition and innovation, the challenges of communicating between vastly different points of view, and the difficulty of wielding authority in new cultural contexts.

What do
Participants say?

Many people start out as skeptics, but by the end of a series of session, 94% say they would participate again. They report increased collaboration, trust, connection, empathy, inclusion and psychological safety.

“At DaVita, we invest a lot in teammate development in very structured programs geared toward management sources. Reflection Point was out of the box for us, a different way for people to have a personal growth and development experience. The program taught us to be more thoughtful—to dig into and think about what we are reading in a way that is different than recreational reading. And many of the ideas we discussed were easy to pull back into our work environment.”
Theresa Stright
Divisional Vice President, Davita
