If you’ve never taken a workshop before, it’s hard to know where to start! Whether this is a new venture for you, or something that you’ve been asked to do by your company, holding a workshop is a major responsibility. After all, you’ve been tasked with teaching a group of people the knowledge that you have gained from experience.
Planning is the key part to running a workshop of any type. You’ll never have much success if you just turn up on the day and expect everyone to follow what you’re saying. Having a definite plan is a must, and there’s a lot more to it than you might think at first.
What is Your Mission Statement?
Another way of asking this is ‘What is the purpose of this workshop?’ If you don’t know the answer, then neither will your participants. Having a clear knowledge of why you are conducting a workshop with this particular group and why you have been asked to plan and run this, will help you to stay focused on what the end goal is – and what the group needs to learn in order to get there. While you probably have a generic mission statement in mind for your workshop, this should be tailored for each group’s needs.
Who is This Workshop For?
A simple question to answer right? Well, maybe not. You might be approached to conduct a workshop where you just don’t think that your particular style will suit the group. If this is the case, put them in touch with someone else you think can really help them. Is your workshop for people of all levels, or just for senior management? Do you host different workshops for different groups, or is everyone in a room together? Knowing the answer to these questions is important before you start.
If you have a workshop and a group of people in mind, you’ll need the ideal venue. Perhaps you’ve been asked to host a workshop internally in your own company? If so, it’s best to get away from the office. Workshops for hire in London vary dramatically, so you’re sure to find one that is the perfect size for your group. Consider the type of activities you will be doing when deciding on the amount of space you’ll need. Some workshops need participants to be more spread out, and some favour a more intimate setting.
Create an Agenda
In order to plan a successful workshop, you need to split the day into sections, and understand what activity is going to take place. This might sound obvious but knowing how you are going to move from one section to another, and how long to give for each activity, is an important point to consider. At the end of the day, all of this should coalesce together, and the group should leave having learnt something really valuable.
How Will You Evaluate?
You’ll never know how well your workshop really went unless you have a good evaluation strategy. Have every participant complete an anonymous feedback form that asks what they liked and didn’t like about the day, as well as any suggestions that they have to improve on it. It’s also a good idea to check back in with your contact after six months, to ask whether the group are using what they learned in your workshop. If they are, this will naturally lead to recommendations, and more work for you!
So, you’ve planned all of your activities, you know what the purpose is, and you’ve tailored your workshop for the group. What now? Well the only thing left to do is run the workshop! Here are a few things to remember on the day.
Why Are They Here?
When running a workshop, the end goal should always be firmly in your mind. All of the activities should lead towards this. The participants need to know right from the very start what this goal is, and how they are going to achieve it. Having a sense of purpose from the beginning of the session will help to motivate them. In some cases, participants might have no idea why they were sent to this workshop, which is why it’s so important to define at the beginning.
Participants should talk to one another, and to you. Having activities in which they work together as teams, or where you are all brainstorming an idea as a group, will help them to work together. If the participants don’t know each other at the start, get everyone to introduce themselves and tell the room about their job. Icebreakers are much more important than you think, and they will help the conversation to continue on into the coffee and lunch breaks.
Vary the Activities
Activities should differ so that the group never feels as if it is repeating itself. Have handwritten work and presentations in-between something a little more fun and energetic. This will prevent the group from becoming lethargic and the day will go in quickly for everyone. Make sure that all activities are kept to time however, otherwise participants will feel as if they are missing out.
Drive the Group Forward
You are the one that is facilitating the workshop, so you need to be the one to encourage participants and keep an upbeat attitude throughout. Try and prevent lulls by asking questions and getting the group to engage with you and each other even more. Keep presentations interactive so that the group has no time to daydream and stays focused on the task at hand.
If you know that what you have to teach is valuable, then this is going to show through your workshop no matter what. The main thing is to keep focused on the end goal, and not get side-tracked. This will mean that all of the participants will know exactly how they can put what they have learned into practice.
