*Unleash the transformative power of face-to-face groups*
The credo of this ground-breaking book is to support groups to do their best thinking. It demonstrates that meetings can be much more than merely an occasion for creating a plan, or solving a problem. Every well-facilitated meeting is also an opportunity to stretch and develop the perspectives of the individual members, thereby building the strength and capacity of the group as a whole.
