    Scene setting

    Sometimes a group doesn't know why they are there. Sometimes you don't either. We show you ways to quickly unearth what's going on.

    Words and stories

    Good strategy, good thinking, good ideas start with good words. We share our favourite ways of using words to get to the heart of the matter.

    Making and doing

    Using our hands and objects to enhance thinking

    Serendipity

    Ways to build connections with activities that rely on serendipity - and might be slightly absurd.

    Discovering

    Ways to discover what might be going on for YOU!

    Challenging

    Going to your learning edge. Taking others to their learning edge. Activities that at first confuse, then enlighten.

  • 7 things that make

    Creative Facilitation different

    1. Training not-as-usual

    There is no manual or set agenda, no boring presentations. We demonstrate, and involve you, in ways of sharing information, revealing diverse opinions, exploring difficult topics, and having conversations about what matters. There is lots of time to try different approaches, learn from each other, share experiences, and reflect. And never fear, we do provide notes, links, and references for you to follow up afterwards.

    2. The invisible facilitator

    At Creative Facilitation we believe the participants are at the centre of the action, not the facilitator.

    3. Theory that matters

    We don't overwhelm you with theory and frameworks, but share our favourites and give you information on where to find out more.

    4. Breaking the rules

    There are a lot of unspoken rules around facilitation. We explore what happens if you break these rules.

    5. Being playful

    We play, metaphorically and figuratively - with ideas and processes. We learn about, and from, being playful - even with serious topics.

    6. Learning from each other

    We know that our participants bring a wealth of knowledge and experiences. We give you time and ways to connect with, and learn from, each other.

    7. It's not about making it easy

    We don't save our participants, making their challenges easy. We dive in with them to explore the complexity and messiness.
