From the AoH listserv January 2013:
Dear AoH colleagues,
I am often asked if there are any evaluations of the Art of Hosting that can be shared. Our friend Stephen Duns has one his firm did in Australia and there is a Master’s thesis evaluation of work done in Columbus, Ohio, but beyond that the evaluation literature is a bit thin. In 2011 we held several Art of Hosting trainings in Minnesota. Jodi Sandfort, Kathryn Quick and Nicholas Stuber interviewed 100 of the participants in the AoH trainings. These were extensive one-on-one interviews sometimes lasting 2 hours. Attached is their report. I think you will find it helpful for review and perhaps as something you can share when asked about evaluations.
They are very interested in a thoughts/reflections you might have about the report. Please share any reflections you may have. It is their intent (and our intent here in the region) to continue to evaluate AoH as a way for us to deepen and improve our practice and support our growing local community of practice.
Best to everyone in 2013.
