Differences from other facilitation approaches

Eddie Blass, Peter Hayward

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter presents two personal reflections on the facilitation of the collaboratory process from two very different and experienced group facilitators. The differences in the process from the facilitator's viewpoint are drawn out including the challenges faced in the processes and the need for the facilitator to live with the discomfort this creates during the process itself. Both facilitators use the first part of the collaborator process only: the talking circle element. They use this as a means of deepening a group conversation rather than leading straight into a visioning process.
