Effective facilitation depends on experience and practice. To get started as a facilitator after facilitation training, apply VIPP techniques in short group events with a team you know; for example: a planning session, a consultation with stakeholders to evaluate the impact of a project, the elaboration of a storyline, or the contents of a publication. Try to use it first with a group of people with whom you like to work. If possible do not start with a very complex event or with conflictive situations or potentially difficult participants.
The next step is to inform the participants about the objectives and the methods to be used during the session. Make it transparent to them. Tell them to be confident in the strength of the group and that you believe in the benefits of involving all participants and their ideas. Ask for permission in a confident way and do not doubt the qualities of VIPP to achieve a collective and creative process.
