Description

This book is not about meeting management, nor is it about how to present or speak in front of a group. It is not about how to train or teach people, though this can be part of the process.

This book is about the collaborative process of building consensus, creating synergy, and harnessing collective energy to create innovative solutions. The practical ideas guide facilitators through combining the best individual thinking into one focused effort and creating shared commitment so that the implementation of solutions is supported and sustained long-term.

With 55 combined years of experience, in research and client work, we’ve observed group behaviors in many situations and have learned a few things about what makes an effective team. We also put our own facilitation skills and process to the test as we discussed, debated, and argued the merits of various approaches and theories. Even the writing and editing of the book required that we “walk our own talk” as we resolved differences, defined priorities, and created a coherent message.

We believe that the principles and suggestions in this book will help everyone who spends time in teams. Whether leading, participating as a team member, or both, you will find that this book provides a practical framework for facilitating effective teams.
