Leadership through Group Process and Facilitating Skills
A Training Manual for Group Leaders
About the Book
Whether you run board meetings, community groups, a family, a staff meeting or you teach, you are a group leader. But whether or not you are a good one is an open question.
Joan Haley, who has led groups and given presentations most of her professional life and studied educational theory and training, shares a proven process for effectively leading groups and provides many concrete techniques to facilitate learning.
She shares the Group Process Formula® which is a conceptual framework she developed to work with groups of any kind. The Formula is a failsafe structure ensuring leaders enjoy their groups and maximizes the learning of each participant.
Just as important, she reveals how a leader effectively facilitates learning so that participants feel the group is a safe place to work through their own process of self-discovery, and utilizes the power of the group as a whole to bolster that learning. Haley provides information to make sure participants walk away with newfound skills, attitudes and behaviors to use in their lives.
