As I read this, I smiled. Before you, there were two facilitators I experienced in the '80s who showed me what I wanted to model. From them, I the ways I wanted to facilitate. I don't know that I was ever fully always quite as good, or maybe just different because my style was different. From experiences with you, I've learned more and that it is a good reflection of you and of them.

About alignment: is there research that discusses how a facilitator's alignment with the values of the group or the company or association or the mission of the work matters in the way a facilitator interacts? provides better engagement? outcomes?
