Introduction to Facilitation

  • Overlap Associates 305 King Street West, Suite 1002 Kitchener, ON, N2G 1B9 Canada (map)

Learn to use the focused conversation method of facilitation, ORID, established by the Institute of Cultural Affairs. The ORID framework structures sessions with progressive levels of questions—starting with Objective questions to establish relevant facts, followed by Reflective questions to explore the emotional impact of the topic, then Interpretive questions to surface connections, insights, and learning, and concluding with Decisional questions to settle on concrete next steps. Overlap uses an ORID framework for most of its sessions to help groups and individuals arrive at insights and alignment to achieve both rational and experiential goals. Use ORID-style focused conversations to design a meeting or deliver a reflective close to a session. Designed for people who want to increase their competence in presentation and facilitation. This is a half-day introductory session. Follow this with our full-day session in Advanced Facilitation.
