[FRONT FLAP] Facilitation can provide a key route to creating buy-in to the need for change and associated change initiatives. But, this only happens when facilitation is used in the right way. The authors outline the guiding principles of facilitation that every change leader needs to understand to successfully drive change. This book will make the principles of effective facilitation explicit for you - increasing the probability of success of your change initiative.
