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!

Hey Workshoppers, I'm VERY excited about this: As many of you already know, I usually only do coaching inside our high-level paid community "Inner Circle"... BUT today I'm announcing a little experiment: I'm going to run a free, 1 hour, weekly coaching session right here in this community, starting next Tuesday (August 22nd)! 👉 Watch this video if you don't feel like reading! You can join these calls and ask me anything you like about: - Building your facilitation career - Running specific workshops - Getting help with running workshops/troubleshooting - Getting advice on working with clients - Sales and marketing tips - Whatever you like! The first call starts NEXT TUESDAY (August 22nd, 4pm CET) and you can see the full schedule of upcoming calls right here on the Skool Calendar. I'll decide if I'll keep doing these based on how many people show up/ whether you all find them useful! ⚠️ 2 important bits of information: ONE: These calls will be strictly ONE hour long. We'll get through as much as we can in that time. I do a 2-3 hour coaching session every week in our "Inner Circle All-Access" community (these are recorded & transcribed), for those who want to go deeper. We can talk about this in more detail next week if anyone is interested in learning more! TWO: There won't be recordings of these free Q&A sessions. Why? For lots of reasons, but in short: just come hang out live! Hope to see some of you next week, let's go! Cheers, Jonathan

This State of The Union article shows how much influence AJ&Smart has on the "F-world" and gives solid insights on opportunities

Came across this cool tool for combing human and artificial intelligence to facilitate workshops… anyone try it? How are you incorporating emerging tech in your process?

Many projects start in September or are in a moment of time when a fresh re-start is needed. I have created with the support of Dave Gray from Gamestorming Group (author of Gamestorming book) a template that you can easily use for this. You have a Miro template in Miroverse for it as well. All steps and template you can find here: If you are interested also why this template works with all personality types, you can dive deep in this as well: In case you need support on this I am happy to do so.

    Awesome, Dave Gray is great and you’re very generous for sharing with the group @Andra Stefanescu thanks for keeping an eye out @Cat Licavoli :)

    @Cat Licavoli funny you say that… even within the company, I had drawn a helicopter to illustrate a point in a meeting. The group didn’t “see” the problem until I swapped it out for a drawing of a commercial airplane. It’s crazy how LITERAL some people can be, and the “creative curse of knowledge” is real — must connect dots for people… can’t rely on them to “get it” especially when they are wrapped up in the minutia of a thorny challenge

I'd love to know where Facilitators invest their money to elevate their sessions and businesses. Is it tools? Software? Continuous learning? Props & materials? Marketing? Hiring spaces? Working with co-facilitators? Or perhaps travel and networking? Let me know in the comments...

    Books, courses/seminars, fancy markers...haven't got really into software beyond Zoom, Procreate, and Notability for my iPad Pro

As some of you may know, yesterday Alex Hormozi launched his newest book $100M Leads…And he had over 500,000 registered attendees…With over 100,000 people actually showing up watching live. By all accounts, it was a massive and overwhelming success…A masterclass in how to overload people with value… And then at the end, he gave away digital copies of his book for FREE along with a legit $12k course… How can we apply his $100M frameworks to our Facilitation Offers?

Hey Facilitators!👋 I don't know if you remember, but awhile ago I asked you all about your favourite resources for facilitators and I got sooooo many amazing answers back! Thank you for your contributions 💛 Since then, we put together a video of our 7 favourites! These resources are packed with facilitation techniques, tips, tricks, workshop exercises, ice-breakers, and warm-up activities. In this video, I not only cover books but I also discuss tools that will help you run better and smoother remote workshops.Some of these resources are free, and some are paid. By the way, we DON’T get paid to promote any of these products. They’re just great, and we really like them. So if you’re looking to level up your facilitation game, then check out this video immediately 👉 I go DEEP into these resources to show you what’s great about them and how to use them. So, give a big shout out to all of the authors and creators of these amazing resources! THANK YOU! Here they are in order of appearance: 1. Gamestorming by James Macanufo and Sunni Brown / Sun Kagami 2. Workshop Tactics Pip Decks by 🎴 Charles Burdett 3. Miro 4. The Surprising Power of Liberating Structures by Henri Lipmanowicz and Keith McCandless 5. SessionLab 6. FunRetrospectives by 🎯Paulo Caroli 7. Facilitator Club Free Community by AJ&Smart Have you tried any of the above resources before? Which one is your favourite?

    Fantastic video! Entertaining + awesome resources

Hi, I've been following Jake & Jonathan for YEARS! Went to a Design Sprint Workshop in Austin, Texas right when the book came out, and it blew my mind... Anyway, I'm currently an "Envisioneer" for a global aerospace company where I create clarity for engineers & executives through visual thinking (basically I doodle for dollars). I had an awesome call with @Cat Licavoli today, and I'm looking forward to developing world-class facilitation skills so I can have an even bigger impact on the future of flight as well as build my own consulting business. If anyone has any feedback on the best ways to leverage live illustrations to enhance strategy and innovation meetings, I'm all ears. Looking forward to learning & contributing to this community.

    @David Newman you're right, the PROCESS is extremely non-linear, and Christina was my first VizFac mentor. Putting it in a "hierarchical" format makes it easier to understand which concrete skills need to be developed at each stage...not that any one of them is "more important" -- even if it's more "circular" it makes it hard to explain to someone who's less familiar with the work
