Light Facilitation for CAF Discussion Hosts
- Tell your story! Use your 5-10 minute kickoff to share something that really matters to you.
- Let the conversation unfold organically — Your participant’s stories, questions, and ideas are the treasure you’ll bring back to the full group.
- Include everyone to make sure all of the treasure emerges.
b) Invite specific people who aren’t jumping in — “Alice, I’d love to hear your perspective on this”
c) Advanced technique: Invite 3-5 minutes of silence for everyone to jot their thoughts on sticky notes. Ask the quietest person to share their stickies first.
d) Advanced technique: Speedy thinkers sometimes need a reminder to make room. Use a gentle hand gesture and/or request to create a gap for a more measured thinker. “Diana, just a moment, I see Grace has something to share.”
4. If things ever get uncomfortable, defer to the CAF team: Diana, Grace, and Alice — we’ll be circulating.
