What was the worst meeting you ever had to sit through? Did you seethe at the thought of wasting our wild and precious moments on earth? In this workshop, you will learn to be brave in the face of chaos (or contradicting client feedback) and cut through the bullshit with facilitation.
Facilitation is the practice of making it easy for groups to solve problems. As facilitators, we have the power to free ourselves and our teams when our projects are stuck, stride forward with courage and conviction, and create work where meaning doesn't get lost in the muddle.
There will be no slide decks in this workshop. Expect an active session of prompts, activities, conversations and probably some venting.
