This is a fantastic tool for professional facilitators. The deck provides lenses and considerations for group work in 9 different categories, Intention, Context, Relationship, Flow, Creativity, Perspective, Modelling, Inquiry & Synthesis, and Faith. Use these cards as inspiration as you prepare to design a workshop or meeting. Or use them as a mindfulness exercise before you walk into the room. Cards include Simplify: a simple process allows you to stay focused on your purpose, Right Size Bite: Break tasks, processes, and content to be absorbed into chunks that are an appropriate match for the time and people you have, Seeing the Forest, Seeing the Trees: Shepherding a group discussion includes discerning when the group needs a wider view vs. when to sink down into the details, Setting Intention: Envision and name what will be done to reach toward or achieve the purpose of the group, and Dive In: Sometimes, when the way ahead is a little murky, choosing to just begin and try things out is the best way to approach the challenge, task, or issue at hand.
