Ok, I have a (internal) client, now what?! 馃槵
Hi guys,
Some of you might remember me asking how to switch careers and start in facilitation. Now I鈥檝e finished fundamentals course and did a minisprint with my salesteam which turned out to be an amazing experience. Something wonderful is starting to happen where I have been asked to run two facilitation gigs at our company. There are two situations and I need your advise 馃ぉ
So I work at a training company where we conduct different courses in marketing, communication and innovation.
Situation 1: There will be an evening during which we will organize a brainstorm to change the name of a category of trainings.
But we also want another brainstorm to come up with new training ideas in this category.
We will have limited time of max 3 hours and the audiences consists of very experienced trainers and some do facilitate such sessions themselves. The group is big - 12 - 14 people.
There will be some introduction speeches by few managers, so have vert limited time left.
Challenge 1: It seems like quite a lot of wishes for such relatively short session
Challenge 2: I feel a bit intimidated by all that experience in the room.
Challenge 3: which workshops/setups could I select to let creativity flow?
Situation 2: Our team of 4 colleagues want to come up with ideas for the new system which will accommodate communication with our students. So relatively clear goal and a small group of people. I feel quite confident facilitating this session. But I am looking for some creative setups. We have three days to get the job done. Which seems like enough time.
I am vert happy that putting it out there, sending my intention to start facilitating has been answered, but now my inner critic is killing me 馃槄
Especially regarding the first impossible workshop. I feel really not ready for it, but I kind of have to get it together and just go for it. Anyone else recognise this situation or feelings? How to fix your mindset?
Thank you all so much. I hope others might learn as well from my experience 馃グ馃崁馃挮馃檹馃徎
