As a speaker and trainer for the last 18 year I can highly recommend this audiobook. It brings useful, practical, and actionable ideas.
Things like having three clear points to get across, and specific deeper levels of preparation are shown in context of real world facilitations.
Audio books on facilitation are hard to find. I loved the audio book so much that I will now buy the kindle version if available to keep as a reference on my digital library. Recommended for in charge of meetings.
If you have spent time with inept meeting conveners, this would be a great "secret" gift. Ariana Savalas does a great job of narrating, and I can only hope that she narrates more exciting content (although this is certainly helpful content). I am a university professor, and I think this book will have wide application to teaching/learning situations. Our students often refer to "Death by Powerpoint" and this is a great antidote to that.
Thanks so much for such a great, filled with value book! Great content which I put to use successfully and brilliantly. The information in this book reveals exactly what NOT to do (a life saver in its own right) as well as gives very nice and practical insights of tools and techniques that truly every facilitator needs. My God, finally a book that made me feel I had to pay more money for it.... (hey hey hey.... Just kidding about paying more money... 👍😍).
"Great for newbies, not much new for others"
The title, it is not fearless, it is just facilitation.
No, it should be extended or amended to include more for experienced facilitators, what else is there, what more can be done to stretch facilitation.
This is okay, nothing amazing, if you are new to facilitation, you'll find it great, for those who are more experienced trainers or facilitators will find little new here.
"Practical and Easy to follow"
It was interesting to listen to. The book flowed well and it was easy to listen to.
The message about trusting the audience and using their desire for engagement.
A good pace and easy to listen to.
No. The content requires breaks in listening to for reflection.
