Facilitation is about allowing people to be heard and creating a safe, common ground for this to occur. At Facilitation One Day Wonder (FODW) our workshop sessions offer a wide range of opportunities to learn from the experiences and approaches from different facilitators.

Feedback from participants who attended FODW in 2017 may help you understand how FODW works.

The learnings:

‘Slow down. Sit with the paradox. Listen not solve/resolve. Listening is Generative’

‘Facilitation makes other processes work, e.g. evaluation’

What participants loved about the day:

‘There was great diversity in the type of people here, a great melting pot of people to learn with’

‘The chance to hear from the wisdom of others’

And feedback on improving FODW in 2018:

‘Provide session structure for the program on the internet before, eg. three sessions, fourconcurrent streams’

Make choices for the day easier via ‘Two minute elevator pitch from each facilitator before choosing’

We’ll also be looking to tackle the challenge set by another participant ‘Be more innovatve and edgy. Less nice’

We’ll be back in September 2018. Your FODW organising committee Abby, Noel, Paul, Simone and Tathra
