Encourage participation

 One of the huge challenges of being a facilitator is to encourage participation from your participants.

It is a vulnerable position to be in, because you, as a facilitator, need to drive the discussion and encourage outcomes, but what if few people speak or you can only hear the loudest voices which mute all other? Then you are in a big trouble.

This is how you distinguish between experienced facilitators and wannabes.

For experience facilitators, it is important to create activities to encourage extroverts and introverts, the quiet one and the one who needs to speak.

In general, companies need to invest in their employees more to increase their skills and make them more productive and effective!

When you know there will be a messy meeting and there is nothing you can do about it, the best thing to do is to avoid it. Messy people produce messy meetings, and they take the time and the energy of everyone who is part of it. That is why instead of being part of this drama, find a better team and better meetings to invest your precious energy.

New year preparations

 I stopped preparing for things since August this year. I decided to go with the flow. With no plans for the New Year, today I received an invitation to a party. Seems like not having any plan was the best plan in the end.
