I really liked Matt’s metaphor ‘Beyond the Event Horizon‘ to highlight what happens (or fails to happen) after the event, workshop or whatever. The transition from workshop back to the real world is a dimension to my facilitation that I pay far more attention to now.
Thanks to Matt for these Show Notes:
00:00 – Introduction – Sick kids, adrenalin junkies & improvisation.
05:00 – Geoff’s camping holidays: Being Prepared vs. Having A Plan.
09:30 – Matt bounces up and down on the unscripted trampoline.
11:30 – Facilitation begins long before the event.
16:30 – Facilitation as transformation.
18:20 – What happens “beyond the event horizon”? What are the transitions?
20:00 – “Random Acts of Traction” – Before, During & After.
25:50 – The offer of support.
29:00 – Facilitators as Collective Memory.
We would be interested in any comments from listeners out there.
