For every activity, workshop or project that we are involved in we try to create spaces where “yes” leads the way. In the simplest terms this means that as facilitators and collaborators we aim to listen in an open and non-judgmental way, then accept ideas and suggestions and run with them whenever possible. So, what does this approach mean to us and why is it so important?
- …opens doors to new ideas, which are more creative and exciting than anything we may have initially envisaged.
- …is proactive and responsive, and is not afraid to change direction and to take a different path when possibilities emerge.
- …is followed by “and” letting each idea become the seed for many new ones, especially when working as part of a team.
- …is about making things happen and making sure the path ahead is clear.
- …puts participants in the driving seat and ensures that they lead the way.
- …is about taking suggestions
- … is about using a starting point as just that, and then being excited about what emerges however unexpected it may be.
- …has no wrong answers.
- …has the courage to try new things and take risks.
- …is rich, responsive and fulfilling.
