I am reading 'The Skilled Facilitator' - great in-depth book on facilitating group! Amazon reviews: http://tinyurl.com/5a83db ; by Roger Schwarz.
This book will really help me to become a better facilitator of groups.
This is an in-depth book; containing a complete Systems-thinking based approach to facilitation.
Core statement: 'The facilitator's main task is to help the group increase effectiveness by improving its process and structure'.
It complements some of the ideas of Manager-Tools in a great way!
There are some similar ideas; e.g. on WWWTALA sessions; dealing with emotions; setting the Agenda of meeting etc.
Of particular interest is the model for Interventions in groups.
Highly recommended reading! More reading at the site of Roger Schwarz:
