I found this article from Dan Rockwell, the @LeadershipFreak on twitter.
John Spence shares some great insight from his 15+ years of being a facilitator.
The list includes:
- The number one goal as a facilitator is to have a clear map for where you’re trying to get to by the end of the event.
- To be a… Guide on the Side – not a Sage on the Stage!
- Another thing that I’ve learned over the years is that I use a progression of: Delivering information at the beginning of the session (setting the stage, setting the context, getting everyone on the same page, creating a shared language – and shared ideas around where we are going for the day and what is most important)
- Lastly, I typically follow up all my facilitations with a two or three page “Management Memo”
