Thinking about facilitation

Catching up with Johnnie Moore for lunch was great. During lunch we got onto the topic of ‘What is facilitation, anyway’. Drawing on the wisdoms (or maybe not) of some previous research in facilitation I boldly suggested 3 pillars to facilitation:

  • Active listening
  • Humour
  • Humility

Course, didn’t take Johnnie a second to bring to the table one element which might trump all of those. Being Flexible. Sure seems to do away with lists, recipes and formulaes… There is only so much one can think about facilitation anyway… You’ve gotta get out there and… Just do it!

Be Flexible
