The Five Personas
No matter the content. No matter the audience.
A masterful facilitator maximizes the strengths of five unique personas.
Each persona serves a purpose.
They combine to deliver a powerful experience for the participants.
Participants are introduced to the Five Personas™ — The Sensei, The Drill Sergeant, The Superhero, The Confidant, and The Jester — and complete an assessment tool* to discover their unique facilitation style.
They learn, for instance, the impact that too much Jester and not enough Sensei can have on their effectiveness. Using this information, facilitators are able to Shift and adapt their individual style to strengthen their performance.
Facilitators develop a personalized, concrete action plan to practice and receive feedback. In addition to increasing audience engagement, the Five Personas Benchmark™ enables participants to grow as leaders and masterful facilitators.
Packages available to deliver the Five Personas Benchmark™ include:
1-Day In-Depth Programs
“Unlike other canned programs, Shift developed a customized facilitation skills program tailored to our unique needs.”Melissa Casey-Woodcock
