Overview

What takes place in the head and heart of an effective facilitative leader? How do such leaders find the inner resources to draw upon? What is the source of their powerful effect on people and situations?

The 9 Disciplines of a Facilitator examines these questions and explores the self-mastery it takes to become a great facilitator. Written by Jon and Maureen Jenkins, two long-term members of the International Association of Facilitators (IAF), this much-needed resource explains that facilitation is more than a process or a set of—techniques for managing groups; facilitation—is its own profession with its own—set of disciplines that help define the facilitator's role.Throughout the book the authors detail the nine personal disciplines of effective facilitators: Detachment, Engagement, Focus, Awareness, Action, Presence, Interior Council, Intentionality, and a Sense of Wonder.

Designed to be a highly accessible resource, the book divides the nine disciplines into three development paths—regarding others (Detachment, Focus, and Engagement), regarding life (Awareness, Presence, and Action), and regarding oneself (Interior Council, Intentionality, and Sense of Wonder). Readers can explore all the disciplines from start to finish or hone in on one or more that intrigue them the most.
