Wheatley's keynote at the International Association of Facilitators
North American Conference 2010
a graphic facilitator, I've attended the IFVP
conference for a decade. I finally attended my first facilitators
conference. I picked fantastic sessions and it really
fed my brain and heart. Now working through some ideas about
the role of facilitators, my place in the field, how to
lead in a way I want. IAF conferences smartly lean towards
long workshops learn you can learn new processes, and away
from keynotes. Focus on facilitation, not speaking. Works
for me. They had a keynote speaker over the last day's lunch,
Margaret Wheatley. I had mapped for her once before last
fall. That event was an afternoon workshop based around
Questions. Here she knitted those questions with thoughts
specifically for our facilitation community and introduced
her new book, Perseverance.

people navigate the complex world around them and bring clarity
