The two not-so-secret secrets about Creative Facilitation

Viv Mcwaters

There’s no big secret to Creative Facilitation , it comes down to two things: using creative processes that allow people to really participate, and showing up as a facilitator that people feel able to trust. We don’t believe in facilitation-as-usual and therefore don’t do training-as-usual.
