Your needs for facilitation may range from group trainings to mediating difficult conversations, and everything in between. We have put together the following FAQ to help you navigate this process and be confident in your decision to bring a facilitator in.
What is the difference between a presentation and a facilitated training?
A presentation presents information--usually through a slide deck--with the goal of providing information to participants. Presentations may also include activities that help create awareness of privledge and social identities.
Why do you often require two facilitators?
When working with both traditionally dominant group members and traditionally marginalized group members in a group larger than eight, we will typically require two facilitators. The best group outcomes are a result of how far facilitators take participants into the work. While one facilitator navigates a particular discussion, the second facilitator studyies body language and takes notes about what is being said. The two facilitators check in with each often and determine whether to push forward, pull back, or change directions. This process is invaluable to executing truly transformational sessions.
