First try of application: ICD

First try of application: ICD

1st trial of application:

Facilitation training for ICD's Leadership Initiatives

(Matthias, Sabrina)


Idea:

Teaching FACILITATION to ICD staff so that they can help to increase the interactivity and active participation of the participants of ICD's young leaders forums --> Leadership Initiatives

 

Tools:

World Cafe, Magic cards, MeWeUs, Apreciative Inquiry, etc.

 

Evaluation:

The workshop did not take place yet since no time was found to get all ICD stuff together. A suggestion for a workshop with the whole ICD team in summer 2010 has been designed, but the ICD management didn't support the idea.

 

Learnings:

  • It is sometimes hard to convice people that have no affinity with facilitated processes.
  • Even if a person says yes in the first place, it doesn't mean that he or she really means it.
  • Facilitation is not about convincing – even not in the step of planning – but about listening and connecting to what the certain group needs.

 

New questions:

  • In how far does the goal of your facilitation initiative meet the interests of the organization/ customer/ (dominating) addressee?
  • Does the management of the organization buy in?
  • Is their a realistic chance that the promises of the facilitation process (involvement in decision process etc.) can be realized?
  • How can to the management of an organization be suggested to think about FACILITATION in terms of means and not threat?
