My work focuses on brainstorming rather than conflict resolution or other applications of facilitation techniques, although I’m also interested in facilitation of group processes in order to improve collaboration.
If I improve my skills, I can use that foundation to help figure out more effective patterns for virtual facilitation and collaboration.
In order to learn more about facilitation, I plan to:
I plan to share what I’m learning with you through blog posts, sketches, lessons learned, and talks.
Looking forward to the adventure!
