Tim designs, facilitates and leads processes and projects that support people, networks, organisations and communities to transform how they communicate and connect. He specialises in the stuff between us – how we are with each other – and working with complexity authentically and collaboratively. Through Reframe Aotearoa (www.reframe.nz), Tim works across multiple disciplines – as a process designer, facilitator, mediator, professional supervisor, partnership specialist – and broadly as a consultant to government, private sector, and community and NGOs.
Facilitation is essential to our daily work as researchers, designers and leaders. We are expected to hold and convene spaces for many purposes - from design workshops and focus groups to daily stand-ups and meetings. We all aim to create spaces that serve and create positive outcomes for the people participating in and contributing to them.
In this workshop, we ask: how can we ensure our facilitation practice serves the people we are working with and for? Together we will explore how we show up when we facilitate; the qualities and presence we each bring to this work; and, practice facilitation patterns in dialogue with each other.
The workshop will be structured around an evolving series of facilitation patterns. We will shift between pairs, groups and the whole. We’ll work relationally throughout the workshop - practicing and reflecting on being with each other, while testing different approaches for facilitation and co-creating new guides.
