The language of facilitation

Last week I recorded a conversation with Tom Guarriello and Andrew Rixon about the language of facilitation. This was prompted by the research Andrew has published on this subject.

It’s a suitably non-linear conversation touching on lots of themes – the power of metaphor the role of narrative and the impact of body language and silence. We talk about how in using language we often miss how it shapes our experience and how easily it can both unite and divide us. Is there something going on in groups of people that is beyond language? How does the institutional language of organisations constrain their behaviour? I also get to sound off about the dangers of premature encapsulation.
