Preparing for a Design Meeting Kickoff

When it comes to facilitation, people only see what happens in the room. If you do well, they usually attribute that to talent and experience.

Those things matter. But to quote Russell Wilson, “The separation is in the preparation.” The hard work happens in the design process, the pre-work, the practice.

My mission is to get people to see that, to understand and appreciate that, and to learn how to do it. I’m still exploring how best to do this, but I know for sure that it starts by modeling it.


  1. Eugene, your journey inspires me to be more deliberate, notice and appreciate the details and to embrace my truth and purpose – thank you for sharing that your courageous path with us.

    1. Patty, thank you so much for your kind words! It means so much to me that you’re following this blog and that you’re finding my words valuable. Looking forward to connecting with you in real life again and catching up on your own path sometime soon.
