Facilitation skills that disrupt, innovate and empower

Good Facilitators Are Worth Their …

 

 

When was the last time you were in a room with an incredible facilitator?

Think about it.

It is rare to see someone facilitate a group well.  

Without realising it, as changemakers and leaders, you often find yourself facilitating meetings, processes, activities and teams. Are you the fabulous facilitator you want to be?

Do you get the results you want?  Is there room for improvement? Do any of these apply to you?

  • You want to lead a team to achieve their purpose
  • You want to facilitate more effectively
  • You want to understand group dynamics
  • You want to be a better member of a group, yourself
  • You want to build collaborative teams
  • You have never had formal facilitation training

If so,  it is time to book into The Art Of Facilitation programme.  It is a practical, experiential course where you will develop the skills and ability to facilitate any group to meet its purpose.

This experiential programme will introduce you to attitudes, develop your personal qualities and give you a presence that distinguishes a person-centred facilitator, grounded in place, space and grace.

You will be coached and receive feedback from programme leaders and the other group members as you facilitate the group.

Over the five day course, you will learn 

  • to understand group development cycles and the role of the facilitator
  • to clarify, identify and create a group purpose
  • to build a safe and empowering group culture
  • the whole personhood approach and, be present to yourself, others and the group
  • to practice a range of interventions, processes and techniques
  • to be comfortable with a wide range of behaviours
  • to effectively handle conflict for the development and benefit of the group
  • to recognise and work with different energy levels in yourself, others, and the group

Are these some of the facilitation skills you would like to further develop? If so, register or email the programme leaders Simone to find out more or go to the website.

The nuts and bolts – each day there will be

  • Topics to study and discuss
  • Sessions to facilitate
  • “In the Moment” coaching
  • Self, peer and programme leader assessment
  • Experiential challenges, and
  • Homework which will include core readings and preparation for your facilitation sessions

Level: beginner to experienced (particularly if you have no formal training or experience with the Zenergy Facilitation Methodology). By the end of the course you will have developed your confidence and facilitation skill set to be truly effective and impactful.

Business + Humanity + Purpose In Action 2 Summit

Event: Humanity In Business

July 20, 2018

Sydney 

Building great leaders continues to be a challenge for Corporate Australia.  With more than 50% of employees disengaged in most organisations, business leaders have struggled to create inspiring and engaged workplaces which help employees navigate change.

With the rate of change continuing to increase,  there is a need for a more human, collaborative and customer-centric leader who has a deeper understanding of their own leadership values and puts stakeholders at the heart of everything they do.

This purposeful leadership development

Happily Made Monkeys Employ Cambodian Women To Empower

Veronica Sherman employs women in Cambodia to create social change

 

What

I design gorgeous products that are ethically produced in Cambodia. I then sell them over here in Australia. I am hoping to expand to Bangladesh & India.

 

Why

I lived in a Cambodian village for over two years and had front row seats to the poverty over there. I could see so clearly that aid & charity just keeps women poor and ethical business is such a powerful way to create social change.

 

Why does it matter?

 The most exciting part for me is the fact that we now have a scholarship fund attached to the community project as well. This means that we are able to pay for the women’s children to go to school by providing them with the school books, uniforms and English tuition. That is where the long term change will happen because education is key for these kids to break out of the poverty cycle.
I decided to create the crowd funding page as a way for people to participate in what I’m doing. I know there have been many times in my life when I haven’t been able to be the one to actually go and do something, but I’ve been able to take part by supporting from back home. In order to be more effective in what I do it’s important that I am able to add more products to my range of handmade goods and that requires extra money to get the production happening. The best part about the crowd funding is that everyone wins since each ‘donation’ comes with an award.

giving food businesses and conscious consumers a voice

Travel and find ethical and sustainable food

Paul Hellier Founder (Food Forager) with Costa

Why do you give a damn?

I have always loved to travel, see amazing places, particularly natural environments with incredible landscapes, plants and animals. I believe it is our responsibility to look after our world and at the very least, not make it worse than it was before we came.

The environment and the plants and animals in our world provide an amazing service to us, (too many to list). Through activities like surfing, skiing, diving and camping we find escapes from our sometimes routine and structured lives, and so it only makes sense that we protect it. Not to mention the millions of other reasons we need a healthy environment.

I now want to do everything I can to leave the planet in a better state than I found it and do what I can to feel that I am part of the environment, not something separate to it.  Interact, and help others do the same.

What do you do? 

My background is in restoring natural environments, and now I am looking for ways to help others live more sustainable lives, one little action at a time.

I founded Fair Food Forager, the app and website to highlight great food businesses being more ethical and sustainable.  We tell their stories and help consumers find and support them so they too can feel good about their daily actions.

We “make ethical easy”, and together we can make the change.

Why does it matter?

Food contributes to many issues facing our planet, and many of these issues have simple solutions. I believe all we have to do is support the people already running with these simple solutions and not the ones who aren’t. Everyone eats, and the food is one way that we can have a massive collective and positive effect on the planet if we contribute in small ways.

It can be difficult not to feel down sometimes about the state of the environment and what humans have done to it. However, I think we can be hopeful, and people all over the world are living more sustainably and educating others as they go.

Let’s give hope and talk about what we can do, not what we have done. Let’s work together and repair things. Most of it is not rocket science after all.

YHER | Women Are The Best Levers For Change | YGAP

YHER  a Female-focused program run by YGAP 

Why Do You Give A Damn?

We believe that investing in local impact entrepreneurs will help the anticipated economic growth on the African continent in the next few decades be equitable. One of the best ways to achieve this equitable growth will be to invest in female African entrepreneurs.

We know women are vibrant and vital architects of society.

We know women are the best levers for change in our world.

We also know female entrepreneurs need to be championed.

More women are pursuing entrepreneurship in Africa per capita than anywhere else in the world. Unfortunately, they face greater challenges and are more likely to run low-growth businesses with few employees that primarily sustain their immediate families. For this reason, YGAP conduct a continent-wide search to bring together an unrivalled group of 15 African Female Founders for its YHER Accelerator. Founders running high-impact ventures aimed at improving the lives of women and girls.

What do you do?

Our mission is to help local entrepreneurs improve the lives of people living in disadvantage. YGAP believes in backing local entrepreneurs as they are the best positioned to find solutions to local problems.

  • ACCELERATOR A week-long intensive entrepreneurship program designed to fast track your early stage venture.
  • We’ll provide training and mentorship while also connecting you to an inspiring group of fellow female entrepreneurs MENTORSHIP Connection to a network of mentors from across the world throughout the Accelerator week.
  • HIGH-TEA An opportunity for you to network with investors, funders, mentors and supporters.
  • FUNDING Funding is available for the winners of our peer review and audience votes.
  • GROWTH SUPPORT Potential to qualify for Growth support, including ongoing tailored support and grant or investment funding to help scale your venture.
  • COMMUNITY Ongoing connection with our virtual community to help you along your entrepreneurial journey.

Why Does It Matter?

We truly believe that change is driven by socially conscious businesses and we want to see women running bigger and better ventures.

When it comes to venture capital, women receive only 3–5% of the funding available and less than 5% of venture capital firms are led by women, and the number is even smaller for women of colour.

For female entrepreneurs who are early stage and focus on social impact – the challenge becomes even harder.

We believe backing local entrepreneurs is the most effective, sustainable means of tackling poverty because it redistributes power and choice to disadvantaged communities. These local leaders understand the unique challenges and strengths of their communities and are often much better positioned to identify opportunities to change lives through the establishment of social business opportunities.

YGAP focuses on early-stage ventures that improve access to education or healthcare, create jobs or build safer homes.

Circular Food is part of this change

Inspiring Peeps 

 

The environment is a major passion
for the whole founding team.

Meet social entrepreneur & founder : Steve Morriss, Circular Food

Why I give a damn:  I read a relevant ancient Chinese Proverb just this morning –

“if we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.”

For the population of earth, where we are headed is not a prosperous future. Something needs to change. Circular Food is part of this change.
We give a damn because we want a bright future for generations to come. We give a damn because we want to “sit on our rocking chairs” at the end of our lives and feel good about being part of a solution, rather than resigning ourselves to the fact that we are the problem. We give a damn because without a healthy planet, what else is there to strive for?

What we do: Circular Food is a startup social enterprise, with the intent of reducing organic waste and improving soil health.

We take in organic waste (primarily food waste), blend it with other products such as organic compost, and process that waste through commercial scale worm farms to produce a high-quality organic fertiliser.

This fertiliser consists of essential elements for healthy soil, in a readily available form for plants.
Right now, we collect all of the food waste from a local Turkish restaurant, making it (as far as we know) Melbourne’s only zero food waste restaurant.

Why it matters:  Soil health is an extremely important issue for the world. Farms globally are under immense pressure to feed a growing population. For this reason, the use of chemical fertilisers has become a vicious cycle which farmers simply cannot financially afford to break. Unfortunately, the result of this continual chemical use is eroded, nutrient depleted soils, which cannot sustain growth on its own. This is not how nature intended it.

Food contains all of the nutrients needed to produce another plant. Food waste sits in landfill and rots, releasing harmful methane and CO2 emissions, when it should be back on the soil replenishing it for the next crop. Circular Food is restoring this natural cycle, by turning organic waste into a plant ready fertiliser.

We supply urban gardeners, hobby farmers, hydroponics growers and commercial farms.

Founder:  Steve Morriss. The founding team includes Chloe Morriss and Robert Scherini, as well as a team of other supporters.

Based: Melbourne, Australia. Our factory is in Somerton, north of Melbourne.

My passions are the well-being of nature, animals, and people.

Inspiring Peeps 

Introducing Dr. Mahdi Mason 

Dr Mahdi Mason passionate about Nature, Animals and People

 

Why I give a damn: My passions are the well-being of nature, animals, and people.

My passions have led me to work in, and complete a doctoral degree in environmental management, start up a blog on how we can lessen our impacts on the planet, become an energetic healer and write a book on how people can empower themselves. My business allows me to combine all my interests. It aims to help nature, animals, and people. Therefore, running my business fulfils me, while also helping the rest of the world.

What I do: The Earth Healing Hub offers workshops, articles, events and products designed to give people the tools and resources they need to go out and help the world around them. It also teaches people simple ways they can help not only the environment but animals, themselves and other people too.

It educates people on how much the natural world does for them and gives them reasons to appreciate it so that they want to look after it themselves. It reminds everyone that we are not separate from, or superior to, the environment, but very much part of a larger natural system. As such, it’s imperative that we take care of everything in the system, not just ourselves.

Why it matters: So many people know that they would like to do SOMETHING to help the world around them but feel powerless to do anything because they don’t have the knowledge or resources. The information my business provides allows people to act within their own means (i.e. not costing money or much time) to help the world on a daily basis.
