PLUME: five principles of harvesting

Chris Corrigan

This morning we began our Harvesting and Collective Sensemaking online course. Specifically these principles apply to harvesting in complex situations where you are using participatory methods to make sense of and make decisions. And what if collective learning WAS the harvest?

Community for the 21st Century Harvest

Here are my images: But hold on to your socks, because Amy Lenzo also recruited two of the BEST graphic facilitators to listen and scribe what they heard, Nancy Margulies and Susan Kelly. I simply LOVE these harvests.

The Harvest: After Event Reflections

Nancy White

Harvest time. The harvest. Reflection is a form of harvest. Debriefing an experience is another form that I am particularly appreciating these days. If facilitators can seed good questions and provide feedback, then conversations can flourish.

Through the Dark Mountain: A Harvest of Myths

How to Save the World

Here is the Harvest, in alphabetical order (grouping seemingly related myths, and some of their opposites): Activism: that well-coordinated activism at the right scale can change the world. Immortality: that we do or might somehow live on in some form forever, so death need not be feared.

When Brad Beach (of Chisholm) and I were noodling on what I might share through my fellowship, I was exceedingly happy that he was willing to step out of the more traditional practices and dive into visual or graphic facilitation.

Some recent harvests

Chris Corrigan

So a little time to breathe and reflect on a couple of harvests. Second, a harvest poem from the Open Space I ran yesterday in Kelowna. With Open Space these days I am trying as much as possible to have a place in which a meta harvest can be collected and created. Most often this looks like a graphic recorder who gathers materials and snippets from the sessions and co-creates a harvest with session conveners and participants. So how to begin to offer form.

Graphic Notetaking at IST Africa

We wanted some form of participation for ourselves, beyond sitting and listening. Second, we are both nurturing our graphic facilitating and recording practices, and in fact are part of a graphico’s community of practice ! It is a form of social reporting.

Simple meeting design

Beyond the Webinar

Full Circle Associates

But more often than not, these are content delivery mechanisms with token participant interaction in the form of crowded Q&A segments or polls with varying degrees of relevance. There is a saying in the online facilitation world “A bad meeting F2F is a terrible meeting online.”

“Not to fight with one another”

Chris Corrigan

I am not a fan of giving people groundrules, because as a facilitator it puts me in the position of enforcer, and gives people an out for how the behave towards one another. Taken on their own, they form a powerful declaration of willingness.

Trying to make developmental evaluation easier

A facilitated sensemaking process to bring together multiple perspectives to interpret what is happening. It will provide information to form hypotheses about the patterns that are emerging, and that information can give you guidance for action.

How to be a Network Gardener

Net-Map Toolbox

They are called “Network Facilitators”, “Network Organizers” or even “Network Managers” But I think the term “Network Gardener” describes much more tanglibly, what those people do who help large and dispersed networks of people grow toward common goals. Harvest: Your network can bear amazing fruit. But if there is no one to harvest it, it will be there just for a moment and then be gone.

What do we mean by engagement online? | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

Now that some very crude and un-scientific definitions of engagement are on the table, let’s look at how we, as facilitators, can encourage engagement online. If that is the reality, consider sub groups and weave ideas between them as their facilitator.

How complexity principles can inform participatory process design

Chris Corrigan

Yesterday I was teaching an Art of Hosting here in Calgary, where we were looking at Cynefin and then followed with a discussion about how the nature of complex systems compels us to make important design choices when we are facilitating participatory processes to do work in organizations.

On the road again to co-host

Chris Corrigan

There is a magic to it born out of deep friendship for one another (we have a saying that friendship is the new organizational form). So as I go into this Art of Hosting, I’m going to do a little harvest on what working together is like, and try to take that to others. Chris Chapman – my Ireland based colleague – and I are looking to create something more descriptive about the practices of co-hosting, and so we have a little bit of a harvest plan going forward.
