About the course

Extremely versatile, 5-technique methodology that combines well with other workshop methods.

Moderation is one of the most effective methods of group collaboration. Involves people in the process of planning, problem solving, or learning. The structured process is provided by a moderator, yet the participants control the results. All of this is fun, motivating, and leads to very good results in less time.

The five techniques:

  • One-Dot question - for participants being atuned, present and to express their opinion.
  • Card-Question - collecting and structuring ideas, insights, opinions, information, alternatives etc.
  • Multi-Dot question - prioritizing or selecting topics
  • Vernissage - elaborate important issues, also to visualize a collaboration and to evaluate solutions
  • Action-Plan -  record the results of a collaboration and the next steps

Moderation is not simply the use of technical aids (Pinboard, cards, pins, dots, etc.). Moderation is a method that shows people how to collaborate in an interactive way with the goal and process in mind to make living, learning, and working together simple and productive.

As the method is a carrier, it can be freely combined with any existing and used method and schedule, its parts can be used separately if necessary.  The value and attitude of the people involved in the process is what influences the result.

Moderation is the visualization, process control system that guarantees the successful implementation, timeliness and effectiveness of group meetings, discussions and collaborations. The application of the method makes it possible to repeat the success of discussions and meetings, regardless of the topic.

Areas of application of moderation:                                          

  • Communication processes of meetings and conferences
  • Problem solving team works (Project meeting, workshop, team coaching, problem analysis, brainstorming etc.)
  • Educational processes, trainings, schools, adult education, for further training, congresses and seminars
  • In sales, presentations, and consultant-client discussions.

Don't hesitate, get into it! It's worth it!
