Dear Mr. Scheier,
You gave a presentation on the topic of resilience at our MAV meeting. The topic is generally very appropriate and there were also certain expectations in your presentation. For me personally, however, it was too "full" and not focused enough, so that I could not take anything away directly. Also, it was sometimes too hectic, I had the feeling that too much content wanted to be packed into too short a time (also regarding cross-references to other topics and speakers).
However, what really bothered me and what I also did not find okay was your partly heretical way of talking about church and religion. This was neither okay in the context (Protestant institution) nor for me personally, nor from my point of view for the institution. By your whole manner and how you introduced yourself, I do not believe that you wanted to get too close to someone directly and consciously, however, this happened. This was also reported to me by other colleagues.
I don't think that would have been necessary for the actual content or for you personally, and perhaps there is still an opportunity to grow in that.
I thank you for actively giving us the possibility of this feedback and also for the content that you have conveyed in large parts (colleagues have already reported that it was profitable from the point of view and your view).
I wish you a wonderful Advent season and a blessed Christmas!
With kind regards
I am happy to give it back. When people like you are in life with such an open mind, it's really fun.
I am very happy when we meet again.
Until then, have a fulfilling time of your own choice.
You seem to have practiced this principle well. :)
