Thank you very much for your great 3day facilitation training! Actually today I have also done another meeting based on your training. This is the 2nd meeting of HR global HR functions. At the 1st meeting, we gave a lot of input for participants and to be honest it was not effective. This time, I showed 3Os as well as great question for brainstorming. After the silent brainstorming, they share their answers each other, respectively with team members. So what was happening? They really discuss a lot, I have never seen... After that, I have successfully identify the most important action with voting. Some of participants want to learn facilitation from me, this is amazing!

Many people has a misconception on the real definition of facilitation, and hence facilitation technique and tools are also misunderstood to a great extent.

I have a new idea on the concept of it & its applications. I AM MUCH MORE INSPIRED NOW TO PURSUE THIS JOURNEY FURTHER!
