Answer this one question to 100x your story's impact:
“What are you going to point the camera at?”
The best stories utilise strong visual scenes conjured up by words alone. They are emotive, exciting and show the human side of the story.
Building rapport efficiently
“Aim to have weekly one-to-one meetings with your team. Building a habit of talking and getting to know each other needs to be done frequently; otherwise, you’ll never get past those initial polite (and guarded) exchanges.”
—Dave Cunningham, author of Team Tactics
The role of a facilitator is not to lead a group to a particular solution.
The best facilitators create an environment of participation, ownership and creativity that encourages a team to develop their own solutions.
