Transforming ideas and needs into meaningful group experiences.
Our values in Facilitation:
We believe in holding space for moments and processes that foster true connection, spark participation and increase engagement.”
People before process
it’s about the group, participants are always at the center, we know where we want to get, but if something emerges in the group that needs to be addressed or when people bring needs, we make time and space for it.
Create spaces intentionally
Designing and setting up sessions and virtual / physical spaces that are deeply aligned with the goal for each moment. We try to answer questions like: why are these people together in this moment, in this space…? And, how do we design in the best possible way having that as our guidance?
Inclusion, accessibility, space for everyone to contribute in their own way and pace including when it means some people need to slow down / occupy less space, but only if they want to as everything is an invitation
Addressing inequities, elephants in the room, not being afraid of uncomfortable conversations or comfortable silence
Approaching even serious topics with unexpected and joyful moments that help foster connection
Here’s what some
of our clients say:
“Wonderful! Instituto NOW helped us set the agenda for our meeting, as well as mentoring some of the team members who designed and facilitated sessions. From the beginning, Elis immersed us in a sea of information and did a beautiful job, understanding who we were, what we needed and where we wanted to go.”
