This seminar teaches the basics of the application of Dynamic Facilitation (DF). In theory and practice, the necessary basic skills for a successful moderation with Dynamic Facilitation are developed alternately. The seminar will empower you to apply the method and understand how to lead a group to a breakthrough.
Dynamic Facilitation (DF) – the method for the insoluble
The aim of Dynamic Facilitation is to find common room for manoeuvre for intricate, emotionally charged problems, crises and conflicts. Dynamic Facilitation can be used to initiate real transformation. The solutions are not based on compromises or decisions that have been worked out, but arise as if by themselves in a collective, judgment-free, creative process. Dynamic facilitation follows the energy of the group, not a predetermined structure or a goal. It is therefore very different, like classical moderation methods.
A topic circles in the round until a breakthrough is achieved. The moderator gives the participants space to express their thoughts, luring them even further out of the reserve by asking questions and does not evaluate the statements. Specifically, on four flip charts, all speeches are assigned to the areas of "concerns", "information and data", "problem". The resulting theme map reveals the variety of opinions.
Even if, in intermittent chaos, solution euphoria, critique and fears mix wildly, the moderation secures this field of tension as a space that leads to collective gain of knowledge and to the actual topic behind the initial question. The founder of this methodology is the American Jim Rough, who has been looking for a way to address the seemingly intractable problems;
Choice Creating in the Group
The core of Dynamic Facilitation is "Choice Creating", the collective thinking in ways to solve a problem. The facilitator creates a protective space in which everything that wants to be said or is in the air can be expressed. The posts are visible to all. This helps in the emotional solution of assumptions and blockages. Through unrestricted attention, collective thinking sets in, quite different from normal discussions or debates. For the individuals, the arguments of the others become comprehensible and they are enabled to face the other members of the group with empathy. In this space of free associations, the creative new emerges.
We-Flection for Two
Dynamic Facilitation is very easy to integrate into everyday office life. Meetings are moderated and documented with Dynamic Facilitation without much effort. A special case is two-way talks, such as in employee interviews or in coaching situations. This application, called We-Flection, helps to gain clarity in the shortest possible time: an insider tip for successful leadership.
Creative Insight Council and Wisdom Council for large groups
Dynamic Facilitation is best suited for groups of up to 20 people. In the form of councils, where participants are randomly selected, Dynamic Facilitation is applicable to large groups, such as corporations or civic participation in the city and country. The seminar teaches the basic strains of such councils.
Dynamic Facilitation Network
By participating in a Dynamic Facilitation Seminar, you will become part of the Dynamic Facilitation Network worldwide. For example, in one of the practice groups, you can refresh your DF knowledge from time to time and find collegial exchange.
