67 Shades of decision-making

Over the last almost 12 months, Dale and I have been exploring decision-making processes that facilitators can use during group facilitation. The exploration began when I attended a workshop run by Dale Hunter at the AFN in Ballina in 2015. The workshop was called 50 Shades of decision-making. It was a collective gathering of decision-making processes that resulted in a document called 50 Shades of decision-making. Dale and I then explored this topic further at the IAF Conference in Melbourne in 2016. There participants explored some of the processes in practice and as a result more decision-making processes have been selected. On our homepage you can download a pdf document which includes now 67 decision-making processes for facilitators.  ..

Testimonial from Liam Colclough

Since attending Zenergy I can honestly say that the impact has been life changing. The skills and understanding of facilitation which I developed during the days with Corina and the team have allowed me to revolutionise the way I approach development and training. I have been able to use many of the skills in working with external groups as well as groups within my organisation. The shift in energy has been tangible; with so many of the people involved clearly benefitting from the approach of unlocking collective intelligence. 

While facilitating a recent group, one person said to me, almost in disbelief, 'If all our professional development in schools was like this, they would all be much better places.'

Where I have noticed the biggest difference is in my ability to facilitate a group to create a purpose and culture; this has become the anchor to all my work, and the way it supports group development and collective intelligence is almost beyond words.

The children in my school have also seen huge benefits from my attendance of Zenergy; very shortly after coming back, I introduced in the moment coaching for my teachers, and this has seen professional development and teaching taken to the next level. 

Only 2 months after attending Zenergy, I am so excited about what the future holds for the staff and children at my school as I continue to use the skills gained to unlock the huge collective potential within my organisation.
