Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[A] compilation of absolutely indispensable guidelines for everything from setting up a room to ensuring participant safety to using flip charts. Esther Cameron also includes useful information on facilitating groups, dealing with participants and management, and handling assorted logistics. Realistic, honest, and written by someone who's clearly spent time in the trenches. This is the one I recommend to every new classroom trainer who crosses my path."

    Usable guide to energizing your meetings and workshops

    How do you stay in control of a group without being manipulative? How do you initiate thought-provoking dialogue without injecting your own opinions? Esther Cameron addresses these issues and more in this useful guidebook to facilitating meetings and workshops. She provides numerous activities you can use to initiate creative suggestions and encourage lively debate. She also offers practical instructions regarding room setup, implementation and follow-up, all supported by examples, case studies, checklists and 'Stop and Think!' reviews. We recommend this book to professional trainers, coaches, managers and, of course, facilitators. If you have to run an upcoming meeting, quickly peruse this book for some reliable, actionable advice.
