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.

I will spare you the false modesty – I actually enjoyed listening to this! Thanks to Lisa for making it fun and easy. I also learnt that Lisa pronounces “Haneberg” as a three-syllable word and it does sound better that way.

(I apologise for my popping microphone, I must get a better headset!)
