Bringing structure and order into a communicative clutter or creating a bit of constructive chaos if the different perspectives are too well-worn – that is how I understand moderation.
Whenever a team is having difficulties with their communication, when cooperation is decreasing or decisions are not taken, moderation can be helpful. As an external expert for tidying-up the communicative mess, I take care of the process by providing guidance, visualising content and taking care that no issue is swept under the carpet.
There are several occasions for a moderation. A small team benefits as much as a large group. In the spirit of promoting the value of transparency, moderation is a wonderful method to hear all the voices within a group, facilitating the dialogue with each other and capturing the main results.
A special tool that I like to use when dealing with certain questions or topics is the method LEGO® Serious Play®. This approach supports the team to tackle their challenges in a creative and intuitive way, encourages communication and puts the own ideas and thoughts quite literally on the table.
From time to time, especially in self-organised teams, an external moderation can be helpful. It ensures that all team members can take care of and focus on the relevant issues – and not bother with the process.
Moreover, in the context of large group events an external moderation can significantly improve the communicative process.
