Tuning your “facilitation antenna” in to manage group dynamics with Lisa Evans (Episode 187‪)‬ First Time Facilitator

    • Management

I love the metaphor that my guest today shares, when she explores how she manages group dynamics - it’s like an antenna, that you need to tune into!
This week, I’m talking to the delightful Lisa Evans from Speaking Savvy, and host of the Business Chat podcast.
I was using some of Lisa’s story activities before I even met her (through reading about them in The Story Cookbook).
I’m particularly inspired by her story of a major career shift in her 40s. A great reminder that we control the narrative of our lives and careers, and it’s never too early, or too late, to start in a new direction!
In this conversation, we explore many areas related to our facilitation craft. Lisa shares her views of what can sometimes hold us back from stepping up and sharing our ideas with others (including the key role of leaders and facilitators in enabling that psychological safety), how she likes to view extroversion and introversion, and her perspective on why we feel so tired after leading an all-day workshop!
Oh, we also have a fun rant on conference locations.
