EXT0603 Lessons Learned from Facilitating CPS for 35 years

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It has been said that facilitation is both an art and a science. The science involves the tools, processes and approaches that we can study, learn and apply. The art of facilitation is made up of the intangibles, those nuances that we cannot always learn from a book, but lessons that come only through experience, trial and error and, sometimes, abject failure. If we are fortunate, we can learn from the successes and mistakes of others and avoid at least some of the same mistakes ourselves. Discover the top 10 (or more) most-important things that I have learned (sometimes the hard way) about facilitating Creative Problem Solving. We will tap into the experience of the group, building together a list of critical success factors for the facilitation of CPS. This session is designed for the experienced and beginner facilitator alike. You will:
• Gain new insight into both the art and the science of facilitation.
• Receive a self-selected list of facilitation success factors specific to your role as facilitator.
• Learn facilitation hints and tips gained from the successes and mistakes of others.
