As part of Facilitation Week 2016, the Toronto Chapter of the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) hosted an evening learning and sharing session on October 18. Located in the legendary facilitator offices of ICA Associates, the night included multiple presentations and discussion. I was invited to demonstrate Feedback Frames to the room of facilitation experts. (Thank you for the opportunity, Jo Nelson and Mara Svenne)
The 15 participants were asked to answer the fun question "What do you do?" but without using the word "facilitation". They generated about 10 ideas and prioritized them by level of consensus in less than 15 minutes. It was just for fun, but the results were insightful. See photos with captions below.
I invite any Toronto area facilitators (professional or otherwise) to borrow a set of Feedback Frames any time, no charge. use them to quickly recogonize and prioritize agreements in your meetings. No bandwagon effect, no group think, no batteries required.
