Facilitation DAZE – what is all the hype about?

Posted: 21/05/2015

From our May Facilitation DAZE…

Last week another band of fearless facilitators braved the Beehive training room to engage in some 'seriously optimistic' learning, sharing and knowledge building around a strengths based, solution focused approach to facilitating group work.

Twelve St Luke's staff, joined by four external participants, shared their expertise and experience in a day full of hands-on learning and feedback. Once again we wondered about and pondered on the distinctions between training, presenting and facilitation and how we can remain 'one step behind' others who share the space with us. We considered ways in which facilitators can help to create a lively, engaging, challenging yet reflective environment that champions and celebrates the skills of the participants.

Using activities inspired by Paul Z Jackson as well as others developed by the Innovative Resources team, the Daze facilitators, Gillian, Russell and Andrew, supported all present to try out ways in which facilitators can cope with and enjoy the vagaries of working with groups of people towards common goals.

And the feedback...

Liz Wright comments

I attended the Facilitation DAZE training yesterday and wanted to share what a wonderful experience it was. It is very interactive training and I gained so much from the combined knowledge in the room. I gained a lot of skill knowledge that I will implement in my practice and it also helped me to really question what I want as a facilitator and a participant. Thanks to Andrew, Russell and Gillian along with all of the participants. It had everything that I want from training: made me think. challenged me, made me question, was interesting and informative and there were lollies and bikkis too.
I highly recommend the training and think it is really invaluable.

Thanks Liz!
