Whole Person Creative Facilitation Training with Simone Maus

A day of experiential training and exploring what it means to be a creative, whole person facilitator. 

“A group, like each individual in it, is multidimensional and operating on many different levels. Group facilitation works within and between these different levels. This is part of the magic or alchemy of being a facilitator. A facilitator working on different levels may appear to people in groups as a magician.” Dale Hunter and colleagues: The Art of Facilitation

Are you interested in:

  • Keeping the energy flowing in a group? 
  • Make your meetings more creative, effective and fun?
  • Feeling more energised after your facilitation and team meetings?
  • Reading the group better?
  • Learning how to work with different levels and energies in your group?
  • Being more creative and playful in your facilitation?

Whole person facilitation refers to the skills of a facilitator to use different aspects of our human existence to generate holistic solutions to the problems we work with.

This day is an introduction into the Whole Person Facilitation technology that was create day Zenergy Global in 1993. This day can be combined in a two day special with Michelle Walker’s “The Essentials of Graphic Facilitation” Workshop.

Designing useful and enjoyable workshops with Martin Butcher

Would you like to be more confident and creative when designing group decision making workshops?

In this interactive, one day workshop, we will explore three conceptual models (Action Learning; Diverge/Converge; LogFrame) useful to structure decision making workshop designs. You will seamlessly explore these through a series of more than six separate techniques. As part of the learning, the session will conclude with you creating a workshop plan. I will help you build on your existing skills and knowledge, help you learn together, and leave with an enhanced skill set for use in your everyday work.

My own goal is to design workshops that participants find both useful and enjoyable. I hope that you will find this one day event just so!
