I am wondering if anyone here has had any success in integrating aspects of LSP (LEGO Serious Play) into their workshops? I have done it as an ice breaker as EVERYONE loves to play with little plastic building blocks!!!

@Hassanein Ismail : lots of other projects on the go, so it isn't going to be immediate. Co-writing it wth a master LSP trainer.

@Hassanein Ismail : thanks. As an academic it is less of a big deal (though it is a lot of work and I've only been a contributor to books in the past). One of 2 book projects underway... along with a number of other initiatives.

I guess Education though I have a very eclectic background that includes cultural policy development, headhunting, investment banking research operations, coaching, corporate training in creativity, and now training and certifying facilitators in the LEGO® Serious Play® method. My primary focus in workshop and training development is on creative intelligence.
Workshop Collaboration
Hi everyone! I am new to workshop facilitation and live in the Ottawa, Canada area although I am often in the Toronto area due to family and friend connections. I have a question about mentorship and supporting each other in facilitating workshops. Is it common for people to reach out and ask other facilitators from this community to help them run a workshop? Is there a mentorship program (formal or informal) where people can connect and help a more experienced facilitator run a workshop as a way to get some experience in this field?

Welcome @Catherine Funston. I'm in Vancouver. Certainly there are a lot of questions asked and answered in this community. I have shared the idea of 'Thought Partners' in this forum ( I am not aware of any formal mentorship programme (maybe reach out to people in the area for that). And you might want to look at the Facilitation Hub that Voltage Control has, as they do have regular office hours with experienced facilitator trainers. d
What is your go-to tool to quiet a room?
I'm curious what y'all use to bring silence back to a room (e.g. after a breakout discussion)? With the first program I was trained to facilitate (Search Inside Yourself) we used a singing bowl like the pic attached. Works like a charm, but definitely has a mindfulness vibe and isn't perfect for every setting. Are there are tools, techniques, etc. that you've found work well?

@Jan Keck : I would never have thought of that. Thanks. I think I will add a rubber chicken to my kit before my next Vietnam tour.

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!
