There’s 20 minutes left in your session and you have an hour's worth of content, what do you do? 

Adaptive facilitation is the key to staying calm and skillfully adjusting course when things don’t go according to plan. On today’s episode, Elena brings you along on her adaptive facilitation journey and provides two sets of reflection questions to support you on your own. If you lead teams, groups or meetings, this is an episode you won’t want to miss. 

Mentioned in this episode: 

  • What comes up for you when things don’t go according to plan? [Tip: consider multiple examples]
  • What feelings and thoughts come up? 
  • What’s the story that you tell? About yourself? About others in the room? 
  • When you facilitate a meeting or PD session, how do you gather information in the moment about how the folks are doing that you are there to serve? 
  • What you see? What you hear? What you feel? What you intuit?
