Advanced Retrospective Facilitation
Have you facilitated retrospectives, and found it difficult to engage people, to motivate people, to make people participate, to make people listen to you and to each other? Join Aino in this workshop on advanced retrospective facilitation. She will base the workshop on your challenges and give you activities, tips and pointers on how to get a skill-set that makes retrospectives useful, and fun. We will touch on subjects such as body language, psychology, team building, decision making, structuring meetings in general, and distributed retrospectives, based on Aino's experience and research.
The workshop style will be attendee-driven, anecdote-filled and (hopefully) fun!
Who should attend this masterclass: Facilitators of retrospectives, workshops, and meetings in general. It can also be relevant for teachers training from the back of the room.
Academic level: Intermediate to advanced depending on the attendees
What is the take away of this masterclass: The attendees will get a deeper insight into why some things work and some things do not work when facilitating. There will be a clinic at the end, where the challenges brought by the attendees will be discussed and sought met.
