Organisations today use the power of collective intelligence to leverage their potential for generating innovative ideas. However, team success does not depend merely on engaged and invested participants. Numerous variables have the capacity of “jamming” the collaborative process, for example, concrete things such as physical space can be an impeachment, as well as subtle things such as behavioural traits, people’s backgrounds, etc. In this context, the mediation of a skilled facilitator can make the process less stressful and more efficient for everyone involved. Facilitators also help to keep discussions focused and to best deal with emerging conflicts.
Facilitation Experience will teach participants the pillar skills of facilitation, empowering them to focus on discussions and handle conflict. Participants will leave this course fully capacitated to mediate groups in the process of innovatively building creative solutions based on Design Thinking.
Facilitation Experience exposes its participants to extreme situations which mirror real-life conflicts that take place inside an innovation project room. There is theory, there are role-playing opportunities, and there are constant evaluations to determine progress.
Facilitation Experience is a mix of theory and practice that will give participants the ability to mediate any group in a creative process to innovation.
“Understanding the facilitation process was perfectly complementary to the Design Thinking Immersion course. Armed with the right tools, I was able to take a step further in the empathy and active listening exercises, which made me able to help my coworkers and friends – in a more conscious way – to solve their problems by using their potential and repertoire to the maximum.”
