@Bryan Guzmán Ya está entregada y todo bien! sólo unos retoques para defenderla! Gracias por tu buena onda! I'll free by the end of the week if you want to talk about the book I think it will be useful for anyone here to kwow about it!🙂
Hello Facilitators👋 I'm really curious about where everyone is from. I'd love to make this a mega post where we can see how diverse the Facilitator Club community is. Who knows, you might find a lot more people in your area than you thought! Once I have lots of answers on this post, I want to make a nice graph!
I co-facilitated a full-day, off-site retreat for a company (comprised of nine team members) yesterday. All in all, it went really well. However, the one tricky thing was having to continually tamp down the urge from the team to venture into free-for-all discussion land. I kept feeling like I was the "time sheriff," cutting folks off who wanted to open the floor for group discussion. Any advice on how to allow for some discussion but still keep things tight and on track? Note: We set expectations at the start of the workshop... explaining the concept of "work together, alone," noting that we'd be moving quickly, and showing them/using the time timer.
@Aaron Kennelly Wooow you're the most!! It's a cute badge also 😄! I think we have to be very careful because the line that we cannot cross, is very thin and the group must feel supported and confortable but withing the rules keeping the schedule's times and the way toghether alone.
@Aaron Kennelly Yes!! That's it! I mean your Idea is not only a good one but also, makes the team feel confortable kwowing that you are leading them. Otherwise it becomes like the old way of meetings we're trying to avoid with circular discussion and all the stuff we kow (and hate, 🥱😵💫talking about my own experience) And of course I'm sure you're the most playful facilitator in the world! And leads the best workshops! as all the Facilitator's Club members!! 😄
Hello Everyone. 👋 My name is Alex. I am based in Lyon (France). I am new to this club and very excited to take part in conversations around facilitation and sharing tips and tricks to better engage our groups in trainings and workshops. I have started facilitating 5 years ago and boy! It has been a great journey where I found myself always learning and trying new things. It has been a blast but now I am ready to take it to the next level. This is why I am here. Looking forward to sharing with you... 😉
@Alex Judges Hi Alex! that's the idea!! you understood it, just as what I have it in my mind. I don't kwow if what´s happening here is almost the same in your countries, but here we live in periods of 4 yeaars. Every 4 four years we are entering a different dimension an all the Argentines are frozen like, in a video game expecting until a new goverment is elected. Nobody do anything new. That's why I'm trying to be known outside my country and here I'm thinking about working in free meetings to show and explain what's all these about, so next year it´s easier to find new opportunities. I know is not a "rose garden" plan, so I'm in mode listening to all opinions, as Alex asked in the reply before. 🤨🤨
@David Newman OOHH! that´s very kind from you, thanks!🙂🙂 To aprove I have to write an article for an education on line magazine based on the last items and methodologies, we studied. Then specialized professors analyze it and give their opinion and if it is correct or not. If it is not correct, they send it back so that it can be improved only once more time, and have the possibility, to pass and obtain the postgraduate certification. It was realy a challege because modules and topics were totally new to me and had no realation to anything Ihad studied before but the Finish flag it's near!😃
