PROCESS & GRAPHIC FACILITATION

A different kind of platform = different kind of possibilities. ...make your work energetic, engaging and innovative...

WHAT IS FACILITATION?

Facilitation is a collaborative process in which groups are be able to connect, discuss and plan in a safe, creative and effective way. Such facilitated process allows people to: 

  • speak openly,
  • make a decision,
  • resolve an issue or generate creative ideas.

Our role as process facilitators is to develop and deepen participants’ understanding of the content, issues and situations that they already know. We challenge participants’ thinking about the issues to bring out innovative solutions. We derive joy from the ‘ahha’ insights of participants about what needs to be done differently. We utilize different facilitation methodologies depending on group type and content.

WHY DO YOU NEED A FACILITATOR?

Your event’s outcome will be determined by your event’s design.

Facilitator will ensure that:

  • all stakeholders’ voices are visible,
  • your agenda/content is engaged effectively,
  • your event is an energetic and creative space.

WHO BENEFITS FROM FACILITATION?

  • Teams
  • Organisations and companies
  • Community gatherings

“We do not learn from experience, we learn from reflecting on experience.” – John Dewey


WHY GRAPHICS?

We think in pictures. We learn and remember better when we add pictures to words. Pictures are our universal language. They can be a social inclusion tool for engaging a wide range of people and can convey messages easily. With graphics we can quickly present models or document a process in a creative way. Graphics have been historically used to share stories, draw maps and explain scientific inventions, and they have accompanied words in every sphere of life.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE KEY BENEFITS?

  • Clearer & faster thinking
  • Effective Planning & decision making
  • Enhanced Participation & Collaboration

WHERE TO USE GRAPHICS?

  • Meetings & Conferences
  • Strategic Visioning & Planning sessions
  • Conversation forums

TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS

I design and facilitate processes that are tailored to meet the needs of all the people involved. The speed of change and the uncertainty demands of us to see big picture that none of us can see alone. Core asset of my work is creation of connection among people asking a question: What do we need to become together so that we can deliver in response to the need that exist?

“We recently engaged Linda to utilise her graphic facilitation skills in adding value to our recent full-day strategic planning workshop. My team and my clients found the process to be hugely beneficial and, importantly, fun too. Spending a full day reflecting on your business – especially the lessons, challenges and wins, can be a mentally and emotionally draining process and we found the visuals helped keep people engaged, energised and processing the information to a higher degree than usual. Linda also custom-designed a set of visual planning tools for our clients to take away with them. We are eagerly looking forward to the next opportunity to engage llazara again.”
