📍Where is everyone from?📍
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!

Favourite creativity exercises?
Hi all! Just wondering - what are some of your favourite go-to methods to use in a workshop if you want people to express themselves creatively in a group? For example, after the group has gotten some input, some date to work with, and the outcome you want to achieve is that the participants put this new information into "practise" and through some creative activity maybe see it in a new perspective? For example, I have used the approach of asking them to create a short-form (for ex. 3 minute) play so they can symbolize and act out what they have just heard or making a collage. What else comes to mind, what are your experiences? Or do you even use approaches like these? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts. :)

Ideas for bringing a new CEO into the team
Hi Everyone I wanted to ask you if you have any ideas on how to bring an executive team and a new CEO onto the same page. I have been working with the executive team for about six months – with the old CEO, who was a significant problem. This person has since left, and the new CEO joined this week. I have a full-day workshop with the executive team on Monday, which was planned months ago. The new CEO will be attending, and I would like to know if you have any ideas on how to create a connection in the room/get them all on the same page. I will be meeting with the CEO on Wednesday to update him on the output of a half-day workshop we had last December. At this workshop we used the sailboat exercise to identify the challenges as team were facing and decide on some actions – this worked incredibly well and there is still work to be done which I was going to bring into the workshop next week. With the CEO joining the executive team still want to complete the work, but I am wondering what else we can do to get the team to gel I am just wondering if any of you have some great ideas for icebreakers or activities to help the team get to know each other. Thanks in advance Leanne

Choosing Icebreakers: The Familiarity - Playfulness Matrix
How do you choose the best activity for opening your workshop? Today, I was supposed to be writing a new chapter for my book about "Ice Melters," but I had this idea that I couldn't let go of until I visualized it. Over 50 people registered for an upcoming workshop and shared their biggest challenges with "breaking" the ice in groups, and there was one recurring message: 🥶 Decision paralysis! How to find something meaningful and fun that genuinely gets everyone warmed up and ready to engage. I have already created a step-by-step framework on how to find and adapt any activity to work for your meeting, workshop or training, but I felt there were too many steps. That's why I created this Matrix that will help you find an activity based on 3 crucial details: 1. Familiarity: How well do your participants know each other? Are they strangers or teams/friends? 2. Playfulness: How open is this group to engage in fun, less conventional activities? Are they more serious or silly? 3. Are you gathering in person or virtually? If you have the answers to these questions, you should be able to quickly pick an activity from this image. Then, in the next steps, you should align it to fit your session's purpose and theme. Lastly, it should be adapted to work with additional restrictions, like group size, space available in the room, accessibility needs, etc. I am curious if this is useful for you. What do you consider when you pick an icebreaker (or "Ice Melter") activity?
