Enabling Impactful Opening & Closing, hosted by Loh Teck Kwang.
The opening of a workshop often is one of the most critical tasks of the programme for it sets the tone for the day. As facilitators, we prepare people psychologically so that they are ready for the programme. A good closing on the other hand can potentially help a group anchor their energies, build supportive relationships and pave the way for better commitments & follow through.
Connect with #IAFsg over casual and cosy conversations over facilitation matters and good food (for thought)!
Our conversations for the evening will revolve around our success stories, challenges we face, & the strategies we use/ we see people use. There will be a lot of sharing, sense making and generative conversations. At the end of the evening, we want to go back with greater confidence we can hold the space for an impactful opening and closing.
What is Food for Thought Initiative?
We realized that when facilitators get together and chat over coffee or a meal, something magical always happen! Conversations we have are always enlightening, energy is always positive, there are always new discoveries, insights and learning! In this initiative, IAF SG members can initiate small group conversations relating to facilitation over coffee, tea or perhaps even over dinner! The host decides how many people comes for the session (we recommend up to 6 for optimal sharing), the topic of discussion, where & when to meet up. IAF SG will facilitate the signup process.
Over a warm cosy meal, we want to encourage fellow facilitators to connect, exchange ideas and insights, and to learn and grow together as an IAF SG community.
