John Heron, well known for his previous books, The Facilitator's Handbook (1989) and "Group Facilitation" (1993), both of which have become standard reading on the subject, now integrates, builds on and updates those works to provide this comprehensive guide to making a success of facilitation.

The key to the new book lies in the way in which it helps facilitators to understand and develop a personal style to their work. Analytical in approach and highly structured, it offers strong theoretical content on the fundamental thinking underlying facilitation (which includes exploration of its dimensions and modes, whole person learning, and a comprehensive group dynamic theory) but combines this with a wide repertoire for practical action designed to enable facilitators to build up their skills effectively.

John Heron's distinctive merit here is his demonstration of the benefit to be derived when such skills not only suit facilitator's own personality but can also be matched to whatever situation facilitators encounter.

This publication makes John Heron's seminal work newly accessible - for it is now available for the first time in paperback - to a new generation of facilitators in both training and education.

Industry Reviews

A comprehensive guide to facilitation that combines a strong theoretical content with extensive suggestions for practical actions. The book will help facilitators understand and develop their own style of facilitation that fits both their personality and the situations they encounter. (Kirkus UK)
