For our Learning Day in October, we have invited members to showcase their practice, presenting a live theme or question to generate learning for themselves and others.
Energy and the Facilitator’s Journey:
The morning session, offered by Rachel Arkieson, Annaliese Glueckert and Jennifer Russell (a Certificate Level Peer Group), will be an enquiry into energy in the facilitator’s journey.
The session will explore the ebb and flow of energy through the stages of a facilitation. The stages include hearing about a facilitation opportunity , undertaking the design process, delivery and post-event reflection and learning. Why does some facilitation drain our energy? Why do we get a high from some facilitation?
We will explore how different activities and situations have an effect on our energy, how this affects the task and potentially the outcome. And what role do we take on as a facilitator, are we responsible for the outcome or even accountable, how much is this influencing our energy, our desire to help or even challenge the group?
Ultimately, we will be asking, how can we harness our energy to have a positive effect on facilitation and support our own wellbeing?
