"The best book on collaboration ever written!"- Diane Flannery, founding CEO, Jume Ventures.
The benefits of group decision-making have been widely publicized: better thinking, better "buy-in," better decisions all around. Yet the promise often fails to materilize. Why is this so? This book will show how leaders and their organizations can successfully identify and solve problems, plan together, make collaborative decisions, resolve their own conflicts, trouble-shoot, and self-manage as responsible adults. Facilitation enables the organization's teams, groups and meetings to be much more productive and to enjoy the benefits of facilitated or self-facilitated groups: a sense of empowerment, a deepening of personal committment to decisions and plans, and increased organizational loyalty. When it's done well, group decision-making remains the best hope for solving difficult problems.
