Planning workshops

Viv Mcwaters

We’re often asked about designing workshops – how to, what processes to select, how to estimate timings, what works, and what doesn’t. If there is one thing we have learnt about planning workshops is that the plan will not survive contact with the group. This is true of designing workshops too. This is because a group of people in a workshop is a network and exhibits the characteristics of a network: complexity, emergence and self organising.

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.

Applying Graphic Facilitation in New Contexts

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.

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

Announcing two workshops for September 2016

Michelle Laurie

This year I am very excited to host two workshops focused on the use of visuals in our facilitation practice. We are treading into new territory as we explore the role of visuals in design and facilitation. This is not your traditional workshop. We are looking to push our boundaries (and yours) in terms of the role of visuals in design and facilitation. The second is the 7th annual Rosviz graphic facilitation workshop.

Learning facilitation

Viv Mcwaters

Here I am in Madang in Papua New Guinea, preparing to deliver a five-day facilitation skills training to local Papua New Guineans who will take what they learn back into their communities. But in all the many, many people I’ve had in workshops and events, only a handful have been truly difficult. And if that’s what you want, that’s okay, just don’t call it facilitation! After all, process is at the heart of facilitation. Facilitation principles?

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.

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.

Creative Facilitation – New stuff. Yay!

How does a facilitator announce new stuff? A musician brings out a new song or album, an artist has an exhibition of their latest paintings, a writer releases a new book or poem – and a facilitator announces…”I have new stuff to share with you.” Learn facilitation?

What is Creative facilitation?

Viv Mcwaters

And how does it differ from any other sorts of facilitation? It took me a long time – literally years of trial and error – to find my own style of facilitation. It was helpful to see how other people facilitated and I would learn lots from them. With the benefit of hindsight, I can say there were two huge influences on my facilitation: open space technology and applied improvisation. With that in mind, we facilitate with people, not for people.
