The session was targeted at CoPs Champions - the people responsible for facilitating the work of the Communities of Practice. The theory went for half a day, and we covered:
- The Facilitator's Role - including self-examination and discussions about confrontation, nurturing and some 'do not's.
- Facilitation Skills - covering personal, interpersonal (c/o Covey) and process skills; stressing the challenge of 'being in the moment' while being the person responsible for the process.
- The Facilitation Process - which was a modified problem solving process.
- Facilitation Tools - in which we discussed, and used, tools for convergent and divergent thinking.
The whole thing was an absolute blast. Thank-you Dr Peter Reaburn for giving me this opportunity!
