Groups answer the questions you ask them.

This makes topic and question framing the foundation of every workshop design. But what exactly is framing? And how do you grow your framing skills?

In this session, we’ll explore a visual tool for identifying and shifting the frames used in workshops. Learn to detect your group’s current perspective, intentionally explore new frames, and break free from stagnation.

Perfect for those looking for new ways to build team empathy, inspire creativity, enhance problem-solving, and up-level your facilitation practice.

About Facilitation Lab HQ

Facilitation Lab HQ is a virtual meetup focused on helping facilitators & collaborative leaders connect with peers in a supportive and inspiring facilitation playground.

We gather to experience and explore all aspects of facilitation, including Liberating Structures, Game Storming, Thinking Wrong, MG Taylor, Improv, and much more.

At each meeting, we rotate topics and approaches, from highlighting practitioners sharing tips and tricks to open facilitation practice where you get hands-on with new tools and concepts.

In addition to Facilitation Lab HQ hosted by Voltage Control, there are meetups around the globe hosted by Facilitation Lab regional leads. See the region map for a full list of all active meetups.

Join the Facilitation Lab Community Hub to connect asynchronously with the facilitation community and get reminders of all upcoming events.

In Partnership With

Miro
Miro is an online workspace for innovation that is visually reminiscent to whiteboards we have in meeting rooms. All the tools are located on the left side of the screen. And it allows you to add various content from texts to images, create maps and diagrams, and work with visual templates together with a team.
