Event description
Using the concept of the Box to understand your existing facilitator image/style so you can then "re-box" yourself as a facilitator/trainer.

About this event

The box on our head impacts what we can see and hear. It impacts how we understand others and how others interact with us. It bounds our thinking and limits our choices. While the image of us walking around every day with a physical box on our head might be comical, it is not the case, as the box on our head is not a real box, but rather, an invisible box that represents the boundaries of our thinking.

If the box is invisible, how do we know that we have one on our head? For me, I know I have a box on my head because people keep telling me to “think out of the box.”

Now think about the puzzling situations in your role as a trainer/facilitator. There is an invisible boundary to your thinking which limits your possible responses. It will be easier for you to find a solution if you know that the invisible box is there, and understand how to go outside of the box and back into it to find a solution. We call that Thinking In and Out of the Box!

Once you’ve used the concept of the Box to understand your existing facilitator image/style, you can then work towards creating a different box for yourself- one that will not limit your thinking and make you more aware of your biases and self-imposed challenges.

Our work in this area is centered around helping you recognize your natural facilitator presence when delivering trainings/lessons and discover what you can do to create an even more powerful impact in the room. To help you create the “right” box for you, we introduce two key concepts – Prominence and Gravitas. Prominence is defined as how much or how little you’re noticed, and gravitas is about how much or how little weight, power and authority you speak or act with. Prominence and Gravitas (P&G) therefore form the two “dials” which everyone already has within them. The key is to dial up and down P&G in the right combination for the right situation.

Session objectives:

• Discover what your current box looks and feels like

• Reflect on what your “ideal” box would look like

• Determine the right combination of Prominence and Gravitas for different situations in your role as a trainer/facilitator

Organiser The Learning Gym

Organiser of Virtual: Unboxing the Facilitator in you

Our focus is upskilling learning professionals – it’s that simple. Learning professionals are often busy focusing on the needs of their learners, and their challenge is finding the time and the right tools for their own learning. This was the primary reason for the creation of The Learning Gym.

Much like a gym tends to cater to a versatile audience and differing needs, The Learning Gym does the same by offering a variety of formats and types of tools to suit the needs of learning professionals. We offer a one-stop shop to address your learning and education requirements. We provide a space for you to exchange new ideas, learn from proven methodologies and tools and from each other. The end objective is for you to be able to flex, tone and build your learning muscles!

What makes us different? We’d like to think there’s a lot that sets us apart!

We’re “glocal”– we bring global tools and adapt them to the local markets.

We cater to the entire learning project cycle and offer support (through tried and tested tools) for all the stages of learning. So irrespective of where in the life cycle of a learning project your role and focus are on, we are here to support you in being more effective.

We also offer different “fitness tracks” to make you more “fit” as a learning professional. Our fitness tracks work on the premise that a fit learning professional –
• Assesses learning needs
• Engages relevant stakeholders early on and starts with the end in mind
• Designs learner-centric solutions
• Leverages technology
• Delivers with impact and is memorable in the room
• Makes learning stick (by thinking beyond the classroom) and supports post-program application
• Measures and demonstrates results
