Facilitation – Process Versus Content

In a recent blog we explored roles and facilitation contexts and often along with questions about this we also get asked about managing the dichotomy of having to deal with and manage both the workshop/meeting process versus content. Let us quickly review what we mean by each? Content – The ‘what’ being discussed. Topics/themes etc. […]

The Role of the Facilitator – Facilitation Contexts

When circleindigo run facilitation skills training programmes we often get asked about different facilitation contexts and whether it’s possible for people in other roles to act as the Facilitator.

In both films and the original Conrad novel, a central character has ‘turned native’ and has […]

Business Process Redesign, As-Is, To-Be or not To-Be that is the question!

There currently seems to be a trend in organisations, business units and functions to redesign or re-engineer business and system processes and circleindigo are being asked to design and facilitate workshops capturing As-Is process and then desired To-Be process. We have found that the best way to do this in the most interactive and participative […]
