You will not solve problems with the same thinking that got you into them.
How do you freshen up thinking?
Bring in a non-biased leader with a proven record of building consensus, empowering quiet voices to lead, and managing conflicts and controversies (not that you have any conflicts, of course).
Leverage what you have. Build better together.
“Malaika [is a] qualitative data master…also convinced us to trust the process, which cannot be understated.”
Lindsey G., Workshop client
Pros: Location independent. Also can be hybrid.
Cons: Some loss of engagement without a skillfully trained facilitator to encourage participation through various sensory applications. See “In Person” pros.
Pros: Generally higher levels of engagement, interactivity and “stickiness”. There is power in using your senses. See “Virtual” cons.
Cons: Some challenges with geographically diverse attendees. See “virtual” pros.
“I recently had the pleasure to meet and work with Malaika, and I enjoyed and learned so much. She is one of the best facilitators I’ve experienced. She brings a strong, positive, can do energy. Malaika weaves in stories throughout her facilitation and connects participants to the situation which creates engaging sessions. She confidently manages through the quiet times and the difficult times, and she easily pulls people in to the conversations. Her facilitation is strengthened by her passion for her work.”
“Malaika took members of our HCD Community of Practice on a journey during her presentation of “Behind the Glass: Introduction to Interview Techniques for Non-Researchers.” Malaika introduced many of us to the world of ethnographic research and interviewing. I cannot begin to tell you how well received that session was. We learned a lot and had a great time doing so. I can attest that Malaika is sure to be an asset to any team that is lucky enough to have her!”
