Visual Facilitation

Have you ever been in a circle asking the question and waiting for an answer? Or wondering what question to ask now? Or having written out thirty questions the night before, only to realize later you never used those questions? Visual facilitation is a tool I've been using in facilitation over  the past twenty years and it’s time to unleash its potential. If you are somewhat artsy...great! If you're not very artistic, great? We’ve all got what it takes to make visual facilitation happen.
