Facilitator Masterclass Training 12
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves of every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.” — Swami Vivekananda
How to Deliver Your Message with Your Body & Voice
Description: One of the factors that lets people know whether or not they can trust you as a facilitator is the extent to which you embody the teaching that you are facilitating. Body and vocal presence is key for any speaker, but it is absolutely essential for any transformational facilitator. In this masterclass learn the insider practices and performance techniques to command the room and create a more rich experience. These professional performance chops will help you feel grounded and confident in yourself as you guide your groups on a journey through evolutionary conversations.
The key to getting value from any endeavor resides in your willingness to integrate what you are learning and implement it in your life. All new thought and new ideas are useless unless we act upon them. The same is true in this course.
If your goal is to be the kind of person that catalyzes change for others it will require you to step just outside of what’s known and what’s comfortable to act as you breathe and accept the challenges that lie before you.
“You can’t cross a sea by merely staring into the water.” — Rabindranath Tagore
As you begin to create your content for a group facilitated experience, you’ll need to begin with determining which clear story you plan on presenting and then adding engaging and transformational elements to that clear story. Complete the exercises below to create your content for a group facilitation. If you are using RECODE content to become a RECODE FACILITATOR then much of this work is done for you and it’s a matter of learning and practicing it. You’ll find that information in the RECODE WORKBOOK.
Please note as a professional if you end up using our RECODE content in your non RECODE events please attribute us and this program. Do not replicate our material without attribution.
1) Name of Exercise: Take a 3 minute piece of content that is a portion of a presentation that you are likely to use again and again. Practice using both polarities of all 4 categories of effort (weight, space, flow, and time). Ideally you would film yourself and watch the film to see how the different qualities of effort change the meaning of what is transmitted. Practice exaggerating and committing FULLY to each effort.
Reflections exercises are one or more questions that we’d like you to be in deep consideration of for the entire week. These are meant to be shared with your family, friends, and community so that they can offer you a more complete 360 view of yourself, your identity, and your reality.
Everyone has blind spots. These are areas where we are less developed that are outside our view. Getting reflections will point out things that you might not ever know yourself.
In addition, the more you consider these reflection questions the more likely you’ll be able to break through your current level of thinking and use the exercises to leap frog into a new level of consciousness.
Here is this weeks self reflection question.
1) Which qualities of effort are you most comfortable with? Which are you least comfortable with?
2) What assumptions or definitions do you have about the qualities of effort that you are least comfortable with that have prevented you from fully exploring them.
