NeverDoneBefore 2023

The Facilitators' Research & Development Department

A global online community for facilitators who want to grow their skills to the next level.

NeverDoneBefore in a Nutshell: The What

NeverDoneBefore provides an ecosystem for facilitators who are curious to leave the beaten tracks of facilitation and grow beyond what they know. 

“We learn while nobody teaches.”

NDB is method- and tool-agnostic. We mix and match methods and tools to expand the definition of facilitation. Community members learn with each other, at eye-level, everyone at their own pace.

img-home-growing
We grow our facilitation skills
by...
  • Participating in live, online community workshops.
  • Hosting our own workshops.
  • Interacting with community members asynchronously
img-home-neverdonebefore-workshop
This makes a NeverDoneBefore-Workshop:
  • We test the new instead of showing the tested.
  • We don’t talk over slides.
  • We invite all voices to contribute.
  • We learn by experiencing.

What you can expect

What we speak about when we speak about facilitation:

The act of leveraging the power of groups by providing a space in which everyone feels permission to contribute and participate authentically.

NeverDoneBefore aims to attract facilitators who are grounded in their practice.

This is what NeverDoneBefore won’t offer you

  • certification
  • standard facilitation training
  • a done-for-you programme
  • polished or tested workshop experience

Aleksandra Potrykus-Majewska
Co-founder of WeWent

“In the last 9 months, I got to not only learn on a weekly basis from the podcast but also had a choice of 3 to 4 weekly offerings from workshops, open spaces, and discussions and a very active and responsive online community on Circle.

Here I could tap any time into the rich and extremely diverse knowledge and experience of the global community.”

“NeverDoneBefore is a dream come true! From amazing people to brand new tools and exquisite expertise.

Here I feel I can find it all, and if we can’t find it, we create it!

#FeelingBlessed”

Matthew Bassett
Founder of Seshboard

“NeverDoneBefore isn’t just one of the best facilitator communities I’ve come across, but one of my favorite communities period.

There’s just something so special about having a friendly group of new and experienced facilitators coming together in the spirit of exploration, to try out brand new techniques and tools, explore new ideas, and learn from each others’ experiences in a deeply curious, open-minded and accepting way.”

Frequently Asked
Questions

To facilitate the onboarding of new members, you can join us 4 times per year: In September, January, April and July.

Members have to purchase a Pass to enter the community and can choose between a one-off payment and monthly instalments.

Yes! The membership includes all workshops and online events, including the 24-hours Festival and its afterglow. 

All curated NDB workshops are recorded and recordings are accessible to members as long as they remain part of the community. 

Many of our members don’t call themselves ‘facilitator’.  The programme is self-guided and experiential in a way that we learn through participating and experiencing. 

To fully benefit from the community programme, you have to be grounded in your practice so that you can reflect on the experience on a “meta-level” (with your facilitation-hat on).

We no longer have a programme for starting facilitators and recommend anyone who wants to join to be grounded in their practice so that they have the foundation to stretch.

Our workshop programme covers all timezones. Community-led workshops depend on the offers by community members.

NDB in Action

NDB was born from the pandemic and grew into a global community that celebrates the art of facilitation.
