Facilitation Excellence

One of the most frequent questions I get when I tell folks about my work is "What does a Facilitator do exactly?"

Years ago, when I founded Sassy Facilitation, I tried to answer that question by writing a pamphlet titled "What is Facilitation?" which outlined the premise, goals, and basic structures of the approach to group process called Facilitation and described best practices for the role of Facilitator. And it did the job pretty well, so I moved on to creating other tools.

Safe Space

Hey folks, welcome back to my soap box! Before we go any further, I'd like to do something with y'all - its something I do with anyone I might ever want to get real with. Its a magic spell that - when invoked - transports us straight through the land of small talk into the soul-and-world-transforming land of Real Talk.

I'd like to set up Safe Space.

"What exactly do you mean by Safe Space?!" I hear you cry. Self-explanatory as this tool sounds (to me), the politics and mechanics of the words "Safe Space" mean a wide range of things to a wider range of people. So, since my rules are the ones we will be obeying here on this blog, let me break down my version of what this means for you.
