About this workshop

Are you a functional expert - in a domain such as design, marketing, HR or technology - and find that you need to facilitate workshops as part of your role so that your stakeholders or clients can collaborate or provide input? And if so, how confident do you feel about your ability to amplify your functional skills and knowledge with high impact facilitation? Great collaboration doesn’t just happen by ‘emergence’, by the last minute ‘can you just run a workshop to…’, or by assembling your favourite workshop activities into a run-sheet and then pushing people through your agenda. Just as you would design a new product, service or campaign, great collaboration happens through deliberate design and facilitation in order to realise its potential.

The good news is, that the fundamental mindsets, skill sets, and toolsets needed to design and facilitate collaboration can be learned by anyone. In this session, we will explore the fundamental jobs of the facilitator and the elements that need to be designed for any collaboration workshop or meeting.

Takeaways

  • The 5 key jobs of the facilitator, and the mindsets and skill-sets required for each
  • The 5 key design elements for any meeting or workshop, and they interact as a system
  • Why defining purpose for your meeting is primary, and how to go about defining it
  • How to design a workshop process for your particular work context or methodology
