How to facilitate "boring" information?
I'll give a training for managers where I will define 4 roles. This means that I have to go over the theory of the 4 roles, 4 times the same structure. Of course after each role I will ask them some questions like. "how important is that role for you? what do you have to develop to achieve, how for is this from your comfort zone? They will have to discuss that in duo. Does anyone know how to animate such kind of training? Btw. I will introduce a LEGO exercise to energize a little. Its mainly the theory that I'm looking to facilitate.

First thing that comes to my mind, don´t tell them - activate them to define the roles in groups by giving a short briefing. I have good experiences with Conversation Cafe. Follow the instructions here: After the groups wrapped it up you can add the missing parts, confirm and adjust. Once everyone has a clear understanding of the roles you can ask your questions you mentioned above.

@Caroline Van de Venne happy to hear about your amazing workshop and that you used the Coach Cafe.🤟 And thanks for sharing the process.
FREE weekly career coaching call!
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

@Boris Petrovitch Njegosh to be honest, i have been thinking about moving to Lisbon, or at least working from there for a while. I would be happy to exchange ideas with you on this. 😉

@Austin Govella More than 10 years of traveling from hotel to conference room to company headquarters was an intensive time in which I learned a lot and which I would not want to miss. 🦾 Starting my workshops from home staying with my beloved girlfriend without traveling and sleeping in a hotel all the time have become more and more of a privilege for me over the last 4 years. 🥰 And so much is possible online with tools like Mentimeter, Miro, and Zoom. I'm happy that my clients are going down this path with me. And I am thrilled about their feedback that design thinking and other topics can be depicted wonderfully online. 💥 I learn something new with every workshop I run and I'm grateful for it. 🤟

I agree with the other comments, it depends on the situation and the context which Ice Breaker I use. And whether the Ice Breaker resonates with your target group and people open up is, in my experience, mainly down to your facilitation skills and how you deliver it. Even simple Ice Breakers can work ;) Session Lab lists Ice Breakers according to different criteria, such as getting to know each other, quick Ice Breakers, kick-off meetings etc. Here is the link: In addition, Session Lab is a helpful tool to design workshops and adjust them live in an automated way.
