Fireside chat with Lisa Haneberg

Lisa invited me to do one of her fireside chat podcasts the other day, which was fun. You can download/stream it here. We talk about facilitation and how I got into it; what its got to do with marketing; the idea of inviting a challenge; improv ideas like “Yes And”; being comfortable with discomfort; the power of acknowledgement; the perils of labelling people as difficult; the control word; holding space for the inexpert.
