2nd application: annual SECD meeting 2010

Date: The workshop took place  on 10th of April 2010 in Chorzów, Poland.

Idea: development of working potential among SECD members, creating new initiatives in association

Tools: World café, Appreciative Inquiry

Evaluation: In Poland we were using Appreciative Inquiry for getting association members to know their strengths and a World Cafe for the participants to define their goals in the association. The workshop lasted one day.


  • At the beginning of workshop with facilitation methods there has to be an introduction to the trust building process so people could feel safe and opened to sharing their success.
  • World Café is a good tool for people to get new ideas and inspire with solution proposed by others.
  • Visual facilitation helps a lot with sharing a common vision and enabling creativity process
  • Evaluation workshop should end with action plan so the invented ideas would have a chance to be realized


All participants felt motivated and empowered by this session and agreed that each year there should be an opportunity to work this way on association development.
