How to practice inclusive facilitation is not easy eg. avoiding unconscious bias, ensuring everyone is heard, « prioritizing the learning of the group over the desire to make a point” etc. Being engaged to contribute to more inclusive work environments, I’m keen to know everything about inclusive workshop and facilitation formats, constantly evolving my skills. I found this article with valuable strategies really helpful, especially the part about fostering shared meaning in polarized environments. Do you have any other tips or resources? https://theinclusionsolution.me/lets-get-practical-3-key-inclusive-facilitation-practices-workplace-training-power-partiality-polarization-inclusive-listening-multipartiality-shared-meaning/?mkt_tok=NzAyLUNJSS01MDcAAAGOUrjcLL66p_1B9zu5QNs9fC0ZtVwXfjtR05Moqjbtq99pkbu7V2aBsyV_qwjmLAHNtF_gi2Pku3NxQjqLxciJ6qjO1EwregWskbws4JVVwB7K
@Claus Höfele Yes you are right, Lego itself offers no Lego Serious Play (LSP) training.

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!
Interesting article/post https://www.linkedin.com/advice/3/how-do-you-balance-intuition-facilitation-tools-skills-facilitation?utm_source=share&utm_medium=guest_mobile_web&utm_campaign=copy What do you think? Any insights and guidelines about balancing intuition and facilitation tools from @Aj Smart ? PS: Additionally I think it’s really interesting to see how LinkedIn starts to use AI for articles and integrating the possibility for experts to add their point of view to the discussion.
I'm facilitating a workshop for startups. It's going to be an LDJ about how to enhance their collaboration. I need ideas for an icebreaking activity and an energizer, as the workshop will take place in the afternoon right after lunch. I want to ensure the participants are engaged and energized throughout the session. Any suggestions for an activity that can help kickstart their energy levels and create a vibrant atmosphere? Your input would be greatly appreciated!
You might find a good idea here if your group is not a big one: https://pipdecks.com/blogs/workshops/17-best-icebreakers-for-small-group-workshops (by the way I have some of the Pip Decks and I do like them as a useful tool for any facilitator https://pipdecks.com/pages/library)
I‘m looking forward to be part of this community sharing and co-creating facilitation topics and challenges😊 I care about creating inclusive and human-centric work environments by bridging the gap between Human-Organisation-Technology. Cheers Sylvia
