Facilitate with impact techniques

Inspiring an audience and creating impact is at the heart of what we do at Dynasphere. Do you have trouble motivating your participants? Would you like to understand and be able to decode your audience? Do you want to learn how to handle tough questions? Or quite simply, do you need to gain confidence and facilitate without stressing?

Over the past 10 years, we have developed proven facilitator impact techniques. Our “Train the Trainer” program includes public speaking and presentation skills, and reviews the concrete steps to take to get participants on board for your workshop. Find out how we can help you inspire your audience, get key messages across and develop them.

Understand the importance of the user experience

What exactly does it mean to facilitate a good workshop? We equate it to the user experience or UX. Part of leading a successful group meeting is guiding and inspiring participants to reach a common goal. While working towards the workshop objective, we encourage facilitators to implement "set the scene" principles  for participants. Besides painting the big picture, building trust and communicating the agenda, facilitators should create a productive environment.

Key elements to structuring a workshop

When planning a workshop, mixing it up is essential for the participants. We recommend designing a workshop with the following elements:

  • Practical exercises that involve different groups of participants
  • Case study analysis in teams
  • Go-rounds or round table responses to targeted questions
  • Brainstorming with white boards or post-its
  • Energizers
  • Reflection and individual production
  • Breaks
