A competent facilitator knows how to move a group from start to finish through the process of building a sustainable agreement, but doing so within the framework of a truly participatory decision-making process is a unique challenge. The Facilitator's Guide to Participatory Decision-Making helps organizational leaders break through crippling group decision-making gridlock to reach agreements that invite and incorporate critical insights from all participants.

- Written by one of the United States' leading experts on facilitation
Those who practice participatory methods often come to see that facilitating a meeting is more than merely an occasion for solving a problem or creating a plan. It is also an opportunity to support profound personal learning, and it is an opportunity to strengthen the capacity and effectiveness of the group as a whole. This fully updated edition of The Facilitator's Guide to Participatory Decision-Making guides readers through the struggle and the satisfaction of putting participatory values into practice, helping them to fulfill the promise of effective group decision-making.
