The Facilitator's Fieldbook (Paperback)
Loaded with procedures, checklists, guidelines, samples, and templates, The Facilitator's Fieldbook covers all the key areas of successful team management, including establishing ground rules, planning meetings and agendas, brainstorming, resolving conflict, making decisions, and helping groups optimize their time. The completely revised third edition of this longtime go-to resource for novice and experienced facilitators provides new team-building exercises as well as updated information on virtual meetings, mediation, strategic planning, and much more. You'll also gain tips on maintaining the tone and flow of meetings, and will learn to determine when to delegate projects to individuals rather than assembling a group. Collaborative projects have become an increasingly prevalent feature of modern business strategies and workplace dynamics. But intentional, strategic facilitation is essential to making sure these groups and teams are effective. The Facilitator's Fieldbook provides readers the comprehensive tools and knowledge they need to help their teams--and, ultimately, their organizations--succeed.
