Hello! Hi. Let us show you around.
You’ve stumbled upon a little corner of the internet that we’ve put a lot of love into. If you’re a facilitator, a facilitation enthusiast, or someone who uses facilitation to accomplish other goals in your life, you’ve landed in the right place. Welcome!
FacilitatingXYZ is packed with lots of goodies.
It started as a Kickstarter, where co-authors Sam Killermann & Meg Bolger were hoping to use excitement around their forthcoming books to fund a facilitation resource. That project grew in ways we weren’t expecting (hello facilitation), and it quickly became something that was (1) hard to communicate and (2) distinctly different from what we thought we were crowdfunding. As a result, we scrapped the Kickstarter and decided to go with the “build it, and hope they come” approach.
We built, and we’re happy you came.
You can watch videos with facilitators talking about lessons learned, areas of growth, sharing stories, and finding common ground.
You can read articles about key concepts of facilitation, advice, better practices, and more stories shared.
You can find books that we think every facilitator can benefit from. These are books written about the nuance of facilitation, and other books that help us understand, hone, and perfect our grasp on that nuance.
And you can download resources that will help you as you’re prepping, when you’re in the room, and after you leave your participants.
Everything that we’ve created here is uncopyrighted, meaning it’s yours to use, to modify, to improve, and to share.
We hope you appreciate this project, and, if you’re so inclined, we welcome your contributions. This is a community space, we’re just the facilitators of it.
