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?

The Harvest: After Event Reflections

Nancy White

Harvest time. The harvest. Reflection is a form of harvest. I wanted to point out some examples of how people have shared out their harvest on blogs, tweets, and other social media to create external value. How can this “harvest&# feed, rather than rot in a pile?

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. This was an afternoon session for the 30th anniversary of the Assembly of BC Arts Councils and 18 conversations took place that reflected the place of these volunteers and staff people who support the arts in towns, cities, islands and villages across our province. and struggle, who know the million details that support creation.

How can social media support learning alliances/multistakeholder processses?

Joitske Hulsebosch

Some time ago I was asked to facilitate a session on this topic. My session was about social media for learning alliances, assuming that you are a facilitator of a learning alliance and that your alliance already exists.

Meg Wheatley’s 12 principles for supporting healthy community

People support what they create. Sometimes that is wise, but more often than not we design, host and harvest without consciousness.

A decade of living and learning, hosting and harvesting

Chris Corrigan

Since then, I have facilitated literally hundreds of gatherings from two person retreats to international conferences using a variety of participatory methodologies. I have met and worked with literally tens of thousands of people over the past ten years and as I sit here and picture many of them, I feel immense gratitude for their patience, trust, support and deep friendship.

Understanding where you are, not where you think you are: some tips and a process

Chris Corrigan

These quotes reminded me how much evaluation and planning is directed towards goals, targets and patterns that cause us to look for data that supports what we want to see rather than learning what the data is telling us about what’s really going on.

Reflections on PGviz18

The place was bustling with activity intended to bring families together and support their educational goals. This was a fitting place for our circle discussions which focused on facilitation techniques but also deeper societal issues. I am inspired. Icon jam with the word feathers.

The curse of predetermining outcomes

Chris Corrigan

Entraining your mind to outcomes is the hardest practice to beat as a facilitator working in complexity. It will shape your process, and cause you to harvest only what you are looking for, missing out on the juiciest, most powerful places of potential in a system.

Nuanced preferences instead of voting for sense making

Exploring future possibilities by mapping “dispositionalities”

Chris Corrigan

We deliberately created a space where things were allowed to fail or radically change and we harvested learning all the way along. This learning was summarized in a report, but the bigger harvest was the capacity that each participant built to take steps to sense, design and implement change initiatives with a better informed complexity approach. When we are truly stuck and yet we have a sense that “this might just work” we need good support to explore that instinct.

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.

Basic design for extraordinary conversations

Chris Corrigan

This is often when those of us who are consulting facilitators are brought into an organization. The second phase is hosting and harvesting. A further consideration for hosting and harvesting is to balance the three domains of work, relationship and co-learning.

Trying to make developmental evaluation easier

Chris Corrigan

A facilitated sensemaking process to bring together multiple perspectives to interpret what is happening. You can then create new initiatives that support what is emerging or figure out ways to abandon what is not working.

We were hired by the Aboriginal Housing Management Association of BC to facilitate dialogue at this 800 person international gathering. The first cafe would look at stories of success, the second would think about how to build capacity to support success and the third was focused on institutional development.

Studying what makes recovery possible

Chris Corrigan

A key part of supporting community resilience lies in accentuating what is working in communities, giving it attention and putting to use. What stories of response do we need to harvest and celebrate and what do those tell us about our community? Where did those values come from and how as a community can we support the continued development and practice of those values as we rebuild? Tags: Appreciative Inquiry Facilitation
