I'm getting so many requests by Board of Directors from non-profits to do world cafe with their Boards and staff because of experiences they had at a large world cafe.
They love the process, the energy that results, the excitement that is carried forward by the group, the connection they make to each other and the results, and the real results they see happening as the weeks went by after the world cafe they attended.
I'd like to find a way to adapt world cafe to small groups of 15 to 25 people. I believe it can somehow be applied, but have not quite figured out an acceptable way to do it.
Has anyone had experience with this who is willing to share with me? I have a Board retreat that wants a 3 hour world cafe session somehow related to "Think W/out Constraints" - "break down silos" - fostering "out of the box" '. . . may seem like old terminology, but they are new terms they brought to me and are excited about.
I wonder if anyone else is thinking the same thing?
Any thoughts are much appreciated.
