Support and material for the course
: “The trainers are the authors of the book Facilitating Collective Intelligence (Routledge 2019 for the English version or Eyrolles 2018 for the French version) which is the theoretical and methodological support for the training. We suggest students to get it in advance so they can immediately articulate each session with the part of the book mentioned by the trainers.”
Persons obtaining certification are recognized by the authors of the book as competent to accompany groups using the techniques proposed in the context of their book “Facilitating Collective Intelligence”. They may also incorporate these techniques into their existing form(s) of practice: team supervision, project leadership, coaching, mediation, team management, training or teaching.
Those who have already followed one module benefit from a particular status when they attend the second module. In their capacity as ‘initiates’ they are offered broader facilitation opportunities than the ‘novices’.
We will bring together
knowledge and techniques from psychodrama to inform group facilitation, through exploration of:
9 Key inner attitudes to facilitate communication: becoming “safe for adoption”, requesting permission, noticing connections, recognizing “professional genius”, selecting a focus, identifying the “lesser evil”, developing the art of questioning, embracing non-expectancy, keeping the door open…
7 key questions to activate co-construction:
- How am I going to work with the here and now?
- How can I create a safe frame and context ?
- How will I stimulate cohesion ?
- What can I do to strengthen participants “sense of personal competence”?
- How will I take account of what remain unspoken?
- How will I enable the group to see a single situation from different angles?
- I can I remain on a (re)searching path?
5 key action techniques to foster creativity and open the field of possibilities:
Doubling, Empty Chair, Empathy Circle, Analogic Detours (Metaphors, Shapes and Colours, Symbolic Objects, Similar-Sounding Words).
Being able to use actions methods to encourage 'out of the box' thinking and develop new paths and strategies in working with groups, teams and organizations, in presential and virtual contexts.

The book approaches is based on the setting in motion of our different forms of intelligence. In a safe frame and context, action methods and facilitating process are enabling groups and/or work teams to consider an existing situation or questions from a new and quite different angle. This process help participant and groups to access new ideas, resources, and solutions.
