Why has facilitation become so important? Because the cost of ineffective groups and teamwork is becoming too high! The Complete Guide to Facilitation is a comprehensive resource that will help your team leaders and group facilitators prepare more effectively for meetings, improve their group's processes, and follow up to ensure more productive outcomes from sessions.

This book includes a wealth of practical information for inexperienced group leaders as well as new tools for seasoned facilitators- more than 100 reproducible forms, checklists, planning aids, and guides. Selected contents are reproduced in CD-ROM format so that you can customize tools to meet your specific needs.
