How to Change Group Dynamics in 15 Minutes

Control the Room Ambassador: Chris Federer

We have TONS of ways to share information. Just look at this page! You don’t need a meeting to read this, and your team doesn’t need a meeting to hear your status updates either. Instead, the best leaders use meetings to shift their group’s energy and intention. When leaders talk about group dynamics, they’re referring to group interactions which determine how the group functions and how effective it is. And just like great music where the dynamic range varies from soft to loud, from passionate to chill, the best teams also operate across a range of group dynamics.

What to expect

The Ambassador Event Experience

We're excited to launch Control The Room Ambassador events, hosted by our one-of-a-kind ambassadors each month, to continue the conversation to the future of facilitation. In these events, you'll have an experience like no other to ideate together with other networks and communities apart of the Facilitation Lab and beyond. These sessions will be hosted each month by our diverse group of ambassadors from the Facilitation Lab, so stay tuned for more events to mark your calendars.

Key Questions to Ask Yourself

When could your group use more energy? When was the last time your group was excited & inspired at work? When was the last time they opened up, bellied up, and tackled a hard problem with vulnerability and resolve? How about a break? Would they welcome just a few moments to breathe and relax? With all our modern hullabaloo, how can you help everyone block out distractions and focus?

How You'll Learn

This event will be activity-based to open the conversation about group dynamics. You’ll recognize, practice, and learn from other facilitators in the room with Chris at the helm. He won’t just talk at you — you’ll learn through doing, work with other participants, and get feedback. This is an interactive experience to learn from one another and gain inspiration to sharpen your group dynamic skills
