Facilitation 360

A 360 review of your facilitation style

How many times a week do you make calendar invites to connect with your colleagues? Maybe you make an agenda or some notes, or maybe you just chuck some invites out there and wing it.

Regardless, if you work with a team you facilitate. And if you run a team, you probably facilitate a LOT. You figure out what people want to talk about, need to talk about, and should talk about. You lead people to make decisions, to earn trust, and to turn that trust into traction towards shared goals.

But how do we know if we're the facilitator our teams need? And how do we know if we're doing it well? Also, why is remote so haaaaaard?

We have instincts about what works and what doesn't. But there are more concrete ways to get perspective, and get better.

Enter the Facilitation 360

Facilitation is relational and contextual. This makes it a hard skill to improve. The first step is understanding how your peers perceive your facilitation, and better understanding where your strengths and nerves lie.

🪐 We’ve hacked the idea of a 360 evaluation, to make F360.

A 360 evaluation gives you perspective about your performance as a manager or a leader. F360 zooms into your facilitation. We help you discover what peers think, what rattles your cage, and what steps you can take to strengthen and tailor your facilitation approach.

👩‍🏫 How it works

  1. We walk you through a step-by-step self-evaluation, and help you collect data from three peers about how they experience your facilitation.
  2. Once we receive that information, we take a look at differences, patterns, and areas for improvement.
  3. Then, we develop a synthesis to show you what we see and suggest experiments to improve your practice.

We can complete your report in as little as 5 days: you can start seeing an increase in the quality of meetings, and a decrease in quantity of meeting time pretty quickly.

Do this as a team: we offer packages for groups, so drop me a line if you want to support a team evaluation process.

I'm Alix.

I became a facilitator while running a global technology nonprofit. I love it, and now focus exclusively on facilitation as a service.

I know that these skills are teachable, and I want more facilitation capability literally everywhere! In every organisation, and in every room.

My teaching is about mindset, power dynamics, and supporting diverse teams to do complex things with care. I focus on the analytical and design skills that you can use in meetings of any shape, size, or goal.

Pricing

The F360 is offered as part of the Facilitation Jumpstart course, but the more we develop for people, the more we see its value even independent of the course.

So, if you buy F360 and end up moving on to take Facilitation Jumpstart, we'll deduct this price from your course tuition.

If for whatever reason you don't find value in the report, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
