SPOT ON FACILITATION
This book is much more than a ‘how-to’ of facilitation techniques. The authors have written SPOT on Facilitation with entertainment and adult learning in mind.
Technical explanations are supported by anecdotes and real life experiences. Pictures, diagrammatical explanations plus tips and pitfalls allow the reader (learner) to understand what works and what does not, based on the experiences of two internationally Certified Master Facilitators (CMF).
I found the use of metaphors and the ability of this book to ‘get inside the reader’s head’ to encourage self-reflection to be very powerful and something, which is often not addressed, in typical academic ‘instructional’ books. Through the use of ‘theoretical underpinnings’ and relationships to common psychometrics, they have provided rigour and encouraged an understanding of the impact of personal preferences on our leadership and facilitation style, a gift often overlooked.
This book is hugely valuable to anyone who is interested in learning how to leverage the knowledge and wisdom of individuals and groups in their work or social lives.
Prabu and Janice have provided an international level of validation by relating the aspects of this book to the core competencies of the International Institute for Facilitation (INIFAC).
