The Art of Facilitation elucidates what it takes to facilitate groups powerfully and provides pathways, tools and processes for this.
This book will provide people new to facilitation with an intellectual analysis of it and old hands clear pathways to doing complex things simply. I use it all the time as a resource in my pratice as a professional facilitator and it is the required text in facilitator training courses which I lead for Zenergy.
I would also recommend Hunter et al's other books: Co-operacy, The Zen of Groups, The Essence of Facilitation.
This book resides happily on my bookshelf, dust free.
There are two primary reasons I find myself continually drawn back to reading the Art of Facilitation. The first is its breadth - it contains a general theoretical overview of facilitation as well as useful practical guidance which is helpful to refer back to. The second reason relates to the gems that it contains. The book is packed full of useful little snippets including processes, intervention strategies, methods for shifting levels in a group as well as questions to reflect on to become a more grounded person/facilitator.
This book is not a fancy, fashionable new approach to facilitation. Neither is it a dense overview of every approach to facilitation possible. It is an informative, very readable, clearly written, highly entertaining book which I would wholeheartedly recommend to novice facilitators as well as those more experienced in the 'Art' of Facilitation.
