Creative Facilitation – the Book!

Viv Mcwaters

It is always in ‘beta’, always a work in progress and no amount of requests for cookie-cutter approaches to facilitation can stand up in the face of the messy, unpredictable and ever-changing world of actual facilitation with living, breathing humans.

7 conditions for a great facilitated workshop

Viv Mcwaters

Remember that you are facilitating a workshop, not chairing a meeting, and participants deserve to know why they are there, when to arrive and when they can leave. I once knew a facilitator who didn’t own a suit and he would tell clients that if they needed him to wear a suit then they’d have to find another facilitator. So relax and trust your skills as a facilitator and your intuition to know what will serve the group and the purpose. Facilitatio

The 10 basic online tools every trainer and online facilitator should know

Joitske Hulsebosch

I therefore completely understand that facilitators of learning and change processes and trainers/teachers can''t see the wood for the trees. I have good news: I can recommend a group of 10 tools that are so useful that each facilitator needs to know them and should be able to use them. I think there are many facilitators already doing this. Furthermore, as a facilitator of a group you can create a list for others to follow, participants or around a particular topic.

Michelle Laurie

I wondered if graphic facilitation may be useful in this context and explained a bit about what I could offer. After each session, the facilitator will debrief with the women on key lessons they learned and the women will then share these with their networks.

Various ways to use social media as a facilitator or trainer

Facilitation tips for improvisers

Viv Mcwaters

There’s also jargon around facilitation. One of my big insights at this year’s Applied Improvisation Network Conference in San Francisco was about how to explain some facilitation concepts to improvisers, especially those who are mainly theatre improvisers, and maybe unaware of some of the traps of taking what works well on the theatre stage onto the corporate or conference stage. The same is true of facilitating. Learn about the bones of facilitation.

Facing Workshop Participants While Taking Notes or Mindmapping

Michael Sampson - Currents

As a leader of many workshops during each year, I am keenly interested in the human dynamics of the room. Those who ask me to come and run a workshop will usually find that I rearrange the room to my specification before starting, a process which can take up to 30 minutes (which is why I always arrive early). It’s a good party trick I guess, but I don’t deploy it as a party trick – it’s my way of listening and doing what I need to do during a workshop.

Facilitation and equilibrium

Viv Mcwaters

Some beliefs and theories in facilitation have always bothered me. What’s always bothered me about this can be explained by the principle of preferential attachment in networks (and yes, a group of people in a workshop is a network). Is it time to rethink our systems of facilitation and let go of the unrealistic equilibrium states some clients yearn for? Facilitation and equilibrium is a post from: vivmcwaters.com.au.

Nothing worse than a facilitator?

Viv Mcwaters

′ when this jumped out at me: “In recent years, PowerPoint’s bullet list structure has been so overused that it can be more of a turn off than a facilitator.&#. And I’m not even that concerned about the bald statement about facilitators. I want to know why facilitators can be a greater turn-off than a bullet-point list on powerpoint. I want to learn so I’m not one of those facilitators. What other reactions have you had to facilitation?

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. And Johnnie Moore has a two-day workshop in Cambridge – that also covers how to perform as a facilitator – on January 9 and 10.
