Chances are, if you’re a scientist, you’re not thrilled about the idea of attending a workshop with facilitators. You’re wary of the over-cheerful directions from the front of the room, worried that you’ll be asked to do something embarrassing, or just concerned that the facilitators get in the way of the scientific thinking you’ve come to do.
At KI we try to keep our facilitation understated, and to do just enough to give you a different experience – doing things differently leads to a different and often novel result – but not enough to get in your way. We will choreograph the seating plan a bit, and give you a good reason to talk with people you wouldn’t normally talk to. We’ll also interrupt your conversations before you get too attached to your ideas, to make sure you’re exploring the field of options and stretching your thinking. Our role is to take care of the process of the workshop so you can spend all your time thinking about the science.
