I ran my Facilitation for Surprise Workshop here in London yesterday. It was one of my most satisfying day’s work for a long time. All the participants were really enthusiastic and engaged and there was a lot expertise and experience being shared. One of the great things about this sort of work is the opportunity to learn myself and I got some new insights on several of the activities we did together.
One of the things that I’m getting really interested in when facilitating is the power of silence. It’s quite a challenge for facilitators to keep silent at times and allow processes to unfold. Yesterday gave me some new insights into this.
The picture is a souvenir of one of the things we did based on the activity described here a few months back.
I’ve now scheduled the next workshop for November 7th.
