What does ‘advanced facilitators only’ mean?

This activity is likely to be confronting for some individuals and upsetting for others. It is possible that teams without high levels of openness and emotional maturity may act inappropriately. While highly impactful, we do not recommend that this activity is run by first time facilitators or those who aren’t confident in their ability to manage a room and lead difficult conversations. Think about your audience and consider if this will be the right fit.

Does this activity have to be done in person?

As both a facilitator and participant, reading body language is an important part of this activity. Given the potentially sensitive nature of the topic covered we recommend this is best done in person.

How do I know if my team is mature enough for this activity?

Generally speaking, middle and senior leadership teams or professionals in most organisations should see a lot of value from this exercise. Questions to ask yourself; How do individuals in this team respond to negative feedback? How open are team members to giving and receiving feedback? Do any team members have a tendency to act unprofessionally e.g. display anger, act dismissively or condescendingly, or not engage when others are speaking?
