About this class

Decision-making and collaboration in modern workplaces is not easy. Especially when you take into account ‘the hierarchy’, corporate policies, internal politics, the quagmire of reports and data and the general ‘noise’ that we need to navigate. It is so often a challenge to get ‘people who know’, ‘people who decide’ and ‘people who implement’ aligned and to go from ‘insights to impact’ within an organisation, and beyond. It’s no wonder that external facilitators are brought in to design and facilitate collaboration within workplaces, with so many middle and senior managers feeling pressure from both their staff and their own management.

However it’s not always feasible or viable to bring in an external facilitator and so the need for corporate professionals - in both the private and public sector - to develop their own confidence to design and facilitate group collaboration is growing. Along with practices such as design thinking and agile, design and facilitation is becoming part of the expected arsenal for any modern professional especially in fields such as HR, Marketing, Product Development, Operations, Technology and Shared Services who typically have diverse stakeholders that need input and alignment.

In this session, we will demonstrate a few techniques for harnessing and synthesising the collective input of groups as well as sharing our perspectives and tips based on our own design and facilitation practice in the field with public and private sector clients.

Takeaways

  • Answers to your most pressing questions about facilitation
  • A simple, but effective, brainstorming process
  • Basic visual facilitation techniques
