The goal of the book: to provide a reader with the comprehensive tool how to lead a group of people on the meeting to the one agreement supported by everyone.

This book is practical, well-written, and full of examples from the author's experience as a facilitator. I'm preparing to facilitate a meeting under challenging circumstances and this book was exactly what I needed to prepare. He explains everything from setting an agenda to building consensus to managing dysfunction. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is in a position of the very least, it would decrease the number of meetings that are a complete waste of time!...more

I read this for class. It started out good, but how in the heck is anybody supposed to remember 60 secrets in facilitation. It was a bit overwhelming and daunting just trying to remember it all. However, there is a chapter about questioning skills. It was brilliant. I need to read that chapter, chapter 2, over and over.
p.s. why doesn't a book like this have a stinkin index?!?
Extremely useful for first-time manager, Facilitators & Coaches.
Straightforward, simple, and practical.
Very well-structured book which explains key facilitation concepts and gives a reader dozens of practical advice on leading a facilitation meeting.
Every chapter includes a check-list of specific things to train and case study examples from real life.

The simple pneumonics really help make many of the tips memorable and useful in day-to-day practice, and really, the true test of any practitioner's guidebook is whether you can use what you've learned....more
I really enjoyed reading this book. Easy, provides practical tips, and uncovers amazing secrets in the world of facilitation
A must read for anyone doing facilitation work for groups or meetings in general.
Jun 17, 2012Lisa rated it really liked it
I came across this book when I was preparing to facilitate a cross functional team trying to solve one of the many business critical issues at my company. Although I had training in Lean Six Sigma process improvement techniques, none of my training had ever covered the practical skills needed by facilitators to successfully lead a session. I read this book in less than two days and it offered many practical tips and techniques that I was able to immediately put into practice at my session today....more
I'm lame and I like to read work-related books in my free time. This one was well worth it though. Facilitation is a really difficult skill to master and I think I will be well on my way after reading this puppy....more

In general I have trouble with books that try to teach 'soft' skills. However, The Secrets of Facilitation had some good information, specifically surrounding how to begin a meeting and skilled facilitators'
responses to common questions or statements.
I read this for a graduate course on group dynamics and found that Wilkinson often repeats himself, as well as states the obvious. Some helpful tips, but certainly not a 5!

The Art Of Facilitation Pdf

This book reveals the secrets of the art of facilitation and shows how to use it to initiate group empowerment. Developing facilitation skills means first fully understanding the facilitator role: that of a guide helping a group or individual towards a conclusion, without steering the decision. To become an effective group facilitator you need to understand the principles of self-facilitation and the facilitation of individuals, as well as that of a group. The authors, all experienced facilitators, begin by fully explaining the skills required and the benefits to be derived. The Toolkit which follows includes practical activities, designs and processes, and includes a model facilitation training programme. This combination of personal experience and practical advice will have wide appeal for facilitators, trainers and group members.
