Virtual Facilitation

ETM Perspectives (ETMP) is still operational and functioning within the challenging landscape of COVID-19. We are still as relevant as we have ever been. Indeed, the challenge of isolation has demanded us to either adapt or fade away into irrelevance. On such occasions, ETMP thrives, as this is what our Adaptive Leadership mindset demands of us.

Therefore, we have pivoted and adapted to meet the increasing demands of organisations who still require effective engagement and people development services. The situation has asked for an agile approach to market in meeting the needs of Government agencies and organisations during COVID. ETMP has optimised its online presence to now run multiple projects on virtual platforms.

Duane Vickery brings a very collaborative, culturally safe, and supportive style to his role as a facilitator. Duane recently led virtual workshops on a sensitive topic for my team, and demonstrated a strong but supportive facilitation and leadership style in the virtual environment. His approachable nature helped put participants at ease, and he gave consideration to the requirements of all participants to ensure he was responsive to their needs throughout discussions. Duane invested time and thought into the project before commencing work with the participants, and this was especially evident through the way he engaged with participants of different demographics, provided guidance to participants from start to finish, and in the questions he asked to ensure he achieved a quality result by the end of the project. He also provided thoughtful and helpful summaries at the end of each session to assist the group to progress work to the next stage. Duane is extremely knowledgeable about Government policies and programs and used this knowledge to inform his facilitation of discussions, including providing strategic guidance to participants to help bring conversations back on track when required. He also provided assurance throughout the project to let us know he had heard our requests and listened to our needs. Duane is responsive to feedback and makes adjustments where necessary to respond to requests or changed requirements. He provided support to participants discussing challenging topics, and was respectful of participants’ boundaries including checking in with them regularly as to whether they were comfortable sharing information, and he was prepared to make decisions to conduct certain conversations in separate/smaller groups for confidentiality, intellectual property, or other reasons if required. Duane is fully adept at managing virtual workshops from a technological perspective, and provided a workshop experience as close to “real” as possible during the COVID pandemic. I highly recommend Duane and ETM Perspectives.

The time spent in introductions and developing the relationship was a reminder to me of the importance of the transformational relationships being prioritised over transactional interactions…that relationships which require trust, do take time.

The content is awesome and powerful and is not light weight at all. The adaptive leadership emphasis and ‘hosting style’ helps me relate well with confidence and comfort in the learning space.prioritised over transactional interactions….that relationships which require trust, do take time.

It is nice to focus on relationships away from the ‘business.’ I like that the presentation is based on research and the smaller cohort allows for good interaction.

I enjoy live feedback and the simplicity of the message which moves me from the unconscious to the conscious realm is especially beneficial. These are important building blocks of learning and the space created has allowed for safety and interaction. There is real value in not rushing through conversations. Creativity (to solve issues) does take time. I also like the underpinning research.

First nations engaged ETMP recently to facilitate a strategic planning process remotely. The process has gone very smoothly with Duane demonstrating great ability to manage the technology, connect with people over video and encourage full participation. We look forward to continuing the process and are likely to engage ETMP for further work.

ETM Perspectives strength lies in respectful engagement and connection in the creation of safe learning spaces whilst challenging clients to extend their stretch points, while including the diverse voice of their stakeholders and training participants. This is still being done effectively on our virtual platforms. We do not see COVID as an encumbrance, but rather, an opportunity to adapt, grow and thrive.

Duane worked with us on a complex co-design process, involving a series of one day face-to-face workshops with service providers; however, the impact of COVID-19 saw us quickly pivot to a virtual environment, with a new approach and format. Duane’s finely nuanced skills as a facilitator to build rapport and trust, and his mastery of the virtual approach and management of the technology required, ensured that a safe and productive space was created to achieve the outcomes desired. I highly recommend Duane for your virtual facilitation needs.
