The Five Personas™
The Five Personas™ Overview
No matter the content. No matter the audience. A masterful facilitator maximizes their strengths using five unique personas. Each persona serves a purpose. They combine to deliver a powerful experience for the participants. Some personas show up naturally, while others require focused effort. Effective facilitation requires recognizing how the personas show up for you and knowing how to strike the ideal balance.

The Jester is a facilitator who is playful and spontaneous. They understand when levity is required. It might be needed to help the group open up or reset after a difficult topic, to build rapport and connection as the session gets started, or even to help participants put less pressure on themselves as they embark on building new skills. Stepping into the Jester role is often overlooked as a core facilitation skill, but it is critical for successful participant engagement and impact.
