Coaching Notes from Practice Session 2 | October 7 2023
*Overall, this was a fantastic opportunity for Community members to practice facilitating Sprints online with other Community members. I highly recommend these practice sessions for all aspiring and emerging facilitators. We are creating a safe environment for facilitators to "get in the sandbox and use the tools" without judgment. **I am happy to provide individual feedback for facilitators, if desired. ***Huge thanks to @David Rovira Kristen Cattell @Laure Duchamp @Hind Bayane @Coco Curry @Irina Volfson @Javier von Westphalen @Keith Wasserman @Michelle Audsley Myers @Kimberli Jeter (please names of attendees that I missed) FACILITATORS | Kristen Cattell, Laure Duchamp, and Hind Bayane · Great, engaging tone and volume! Each participant felt heard and acknowledged when introducing themselves, ask questions, and/or presenting ideas. · Very good presence and confidence with most of the Sprint elements. Each facilitator maintained poise throughout the session and exhibited strong confidence even when faced with confusing elements of the Sprint. · There were noticeable instances of verbal fillers such as “um,” “uh,” as well as, “…and, yeah” or “…but, yeah.” While these fillers are frequently used in everyday English communication, facilitators should learn how to remove them from their facilitation speaking. · Session facilitators should encourage participants to utilize all notes and “How might we” blocks related to each section. - Expect participants to ask questions about both the overall process, specific activities, and session topic/theme. · Begin with an overview of the Sprint process to ensure participants understand where the group is headed. - Briefly explain each section and bring attention to the timing and breaks.

Seeking two co-facilitators in Houston for local event — Sat, Sep 30
Saturday, September 30, I am presenting at a local event being jointly produced by the Design Thinking and Innovation, Houston Product, and Houston UXPA groups. The event runs from 10 AM - 12 Noon. It's an interactive event where we'll have some short presentations on facilitation tips and then break into groups to learn two activities participants can run with their teams: I am looking for two co-facilitators to help manage groups. Each co-facilitator would probably have one group, but if turnout is higher, you might have two groups to support. I will pay $50 for your time. Happy to have experienced co-facilitators, or if you're a new facilitator, I can walk you through how to run the activities and manage your group ahead of time, and then you can get some practice. Please email me at if you are interested. I would appreciate the support in making sure this even runs smoothly.

Workshopping playlist
Hello lovely people! ☀️ Here is my very first playlist for workshopping sessions after completing the first part of the program 😊 I organised it so that the rhythms and tones would match different 4C phases, so we have divergent phases with dynamic tunes, encouraging ideation and production of information, then slowly transitioning to a more composed and slow phase for convergent thinking. The idea being that slower tunes encourage pausing and thinking for voting. Very curious to know what you guys think! Does that reflect how you like to work too? 🌟
