Upcoming IAF events
The Global Facilitators’ Virtual Café #25 organized by IAF Japan in cooperation with FAJ（Facilitators’ Association of Japan), and the World Café Community, is scheduled to take place on Monday, Jan. 31st at 20:00 Japan Time（UTC+9）
The Global Facilitators’ Virtual Café is an online World Café for global facilitators.
This time, Sumiyo Shiina will host the Café conversation on the theme of Your “being” for 2022.
Join the IAF Online Facilitation Special Interest Group (SIG) to warm up, to reconnect and to help them find a lineup of facilitators. The February session will be about sharing impactful online facilitation ideas and activities that you have seen or practiced in the last 2 months.
Join us on the 3rd of February when John Varney expands on his book, “Leadership as meaning-Making – Take the Hero’s Journey to Transformation”. Based on his experience over 40 years, when he founded and ran the Centre for Management Creativity and its residential centre at High Trenhouse, he asks, “Is the developmental dimension of facilitation critical to the future of humanity?”
Participants often are affected by the atmosphere in the meeting emotionally. We use the metaphor of fire to describe the situation. As we know the importance of fire plays a significant role in nature. As professional facilitators, how can we use fire’s positive energy and transform the negative ones to benefit the group? Join the online event for this session to share your sparks and collect energy from the group that will inspire you how to dance with fire in meetings.
