Design thinking sounds amazing in theory, but if you have experienced facilitating a design process, you can attest to how messy it can be in practice!
How does a facilitator truly help bring people from diverse backgrounds together? Often, when different worldviews collide, power dynamics come to play, tensions build, relationships strain and challenging behaviours arise. It is part of a facilitator’s job to hold space for conversations amidst such complexity.
This is a hands-on workshop that delves into the messiness of design facilitation, offering you a safe space to learn how to be a better facilitator through guided practice. This workshop will build on basics covered in Design Facilitation 1, and cover advanced topics like managing power dynamics, tension, challenging behaviours and facilitating design critique in a manner that fosters conversation.
