  • Tips for Auditing L Program?

    I’m super excited to be auditing the L program in Region 8 later this year.

    Any suggestions to make the most of it? I’d love to hear from both auditors and participants!

    Read the materials you’re given. Get the reading list and start on that mountain of stuff. Be respectful and don’t argue with the instructors. If you have questions try to write them down in advance and ask after the candidates have asked their questions. Be respectful and open to learning.

    Don’t take up time telling everyone about the time you were in such and such a situation or saw such and such. That last one goes for everyone. We had a couple of people in the program I did that took up so much time telling their stories the instructors started cutting them off. None of them went on to part 2.

        Be aware that auditors may NOT get to ask any questions. Generally, participants sit in the front, and are expected to interact. Auditors are actually called SILENT auditors in all the L materials. So don't be disappointed if you don't get to ask questions, or there is just a few minutes for auditor questions once or twice daily.

        Take lots of notes, Sign up for all 3 weekends. The first weekend is often a bit confusing and disjointed - the next two weekends really build on that first weekend, so it starts making a lot more sense.

        Go in expecting a bit of brain overload - there is a LOT of information crammed into those 3 weekends!

          When I audited (twice 10 years apart) the auditors had to write their questions down and could not interact much as MysticOakRanch mentioned. That being said I still learned a great deal and would recommend that anyone who can attend the sessions should.
