Being an Educator and Process Driven Facilitator is an art form. Some of it is instinctive, and other bits you learn from books. It is extremely different than teaching from a curriculum. I’ve done both. Curriculums are useful but no curriculum can prepare for every contingency, personality or belief system of every participant who enters the room.
A true professional has to be ready to serve and flexible to the context of the moment. Below, I share a recent experience in this video and what happened when I changed my program 10 minutes in. The hiring event planner was pleasantly surprised at the outcome.
As they say in the movies, this is best done by professionals. Do not try this at home.
I want to say, this wouldn’t have worked if I didn’t trust in the process. I walk in with the assumption that everyone wants to learn.
Wouldn’t it be great to get along better with the people who drive you crazy? Don’t be afraid of conflict. Leverage it and grow as a group.
