The content of our two-day Bring Your Meetings to Life workshops
Seven things that make Creative Facilitation different
1. Training not-as-usual
There is no manual or set agenda, no boring presentations. We demonstrate, and involve you, in ways of sharing information, revealing diverse opinions, exploring difficult topics, and having conversations about what matters. There is lots of time to try different approaches, learn from each other, share experiences, and reflect. And never fear, we do provide notes, links, and references for you to follow up afterwards.We don’t believe in meetings as usual, and we don’t do training as usual.
2. The invisible facilitator
At Creative Facilitation we believe the participants are at the centre of the action, not the facilitator.
3. Theory that matters
We don't overwhelm you with theory and frameworks, but share our favourites and give you information on where to find out more.
4. Breaking the rules
There are a lot of unspoken rules around facilitation. We explore what happens if you break these rules.
5. Being playful
We play, metaphorically and figuratively - with ideas and processes. We learn about, and from, being playful - even with serious topics.
6. Learning from each other
We know that our participants bring a wealth of knowledge and experiences. We give you time and ways to connect with, and learn from, each other.
7. It's not about making it easy
We don't save our participants, making their challenges easy. We dive in with them to explore the complexity and messiness.
Our training is experiential, fun, and thought-provoking. We’ve done this around the world, from Malawi to Melbourne, from Solomon Islands to Scotland.
