Question: Why are facilitators like Penguins?
Answer: When in the water, they spend seventy five percent of their time under the surface!
For both penguins and facilitators what lies beneath the tip of the iceberg is a world of discovery. The tip of the iceberg represents what we know and can touch in any session, the content, the methods being used to support participation and the tools to help clarify, define, support thinking, decision making and planning. What we cannot see are the elements that might be motivating participants to contribute or not, agree, disagree, challenge or remain silent for example. Facilitators consider what is under the surface as part of their meeting design and bring their skills and experience to support progress and process once they and the group dive in!
Facilitation Skills Virtual Workshop Series
We are offering our one day fast track facilitation skills programme as an online experience to develop your insight, skills and tool box for facilitation in both the virtual and face to face meeting room. The Virtual Facilitation Workshop runs over 1 full day (two sessions of three hours) followed by one morning of three hours and simulates as far as possible the intensive and highly participative facilitation skills workshop you would experience face to face. We explore core facilitation competencies, key responsibilities and a host of tools and methods to give you confidence in facilitating meetings and groups and the chance to practice.
Participants on our virtual workshop described it as ´challenging, fun, insightful, full of tools, supportive, highly engaging and a must do´ - so join in! If you are a trainer needing to get to grips with the online world or you want to learn how to facilitate more engaging and productive meetings and events online then it will help you too.
