The Essence of Facilitation ( 1999) by Dale Hunter, Anne Bailey and Bill Taylor.
What do you do when the group you are facilitating gets stuck, caught in a loop covering the same old ground, is unable to agree on anything, is working too slowly when speed is needed, is unfocused, or encounters one of the many problems that can get in the road of reaching a conclusion?
This book by the authors of The Art of Facilitation presents a fresh approach to group facilitation. This very practical text focuses on the key skill of noticing what is missing in a group’s interaction and finding a way of introducing the missing elements while the group is in action.
The Essence of Facilitation is presently OUT OF PRINT however an electronic copy is available which you can DOWNLOAD HERE.
Management Zen – Spanish language translation of The Zen of Groups
Management Zen is a Spanish translation of our first book, The Zen of Groups: A handbook for people meeting with purpose ( 1992). Management Zen was originally published in Argentina and has been out of print for a number of years. Spanish speakers may enjoy reading this version. Do download and use.
The purpose of the book is to alter consciousness about what is possible for groups and to provide access to group synergy. The book offers insight into what makes groups work powerfully, and includes a large selection of exercises and techniques which will will assist your group to move through the processes and stages which will make this possible.
The book is designed to appeal to a broad spectrum of readers involved in organisations, business, community groups, education and recreation. It is written to be accessible to everyone who is part of a work, community, social, family or support group. The leadership role we explore in depth is that of a facilitator.
