A Structured Group Conversation
I’ve facilitated hundreds of hours of group conversations, sometimes with as many as fourteen people around the table. I like to think of my meetups as fast-paced, fun, and hilarious. And, more importantly, people tell me I do a good job.
Even so, I’m always looking for new ways to create group spaces with unique properties. I like creating spaces where stuff can be voiced that otherwise couldn’t be voiced at all. (Ideally, I’d like that stuff to be voice-able outside the spaces I create, but one thing at a time.)
Additionally, I would like to empower facilitators who need some extra structural support. I’ve been to too many group conversations where one or two people obliviously, painfully dominated the conversation (and it wasn’t my place to help balance things out). For those situations, I want to give facilitators tools that make it easier to keep things flowing.
So, here’s one of my creations: guidelines and bookkeeping, using a timer and tokens, to make sure everyone can have a voice (if desired), and to make it easier to talk about quiet, patient, introverted topics.
Have a conversation, or an ongoing series of conversations, about anything and everything, and be assured that everyone will have a voice.
