Susan Albers Mohrman and Allan M. Mohrman, Jr. (Jossey-Bass, 1997)
In this practical guide for group leaders and facilitators, Susan Albers Mohrman and Allan M. Mohrman, Jr. offer background information, insights, and tools that allow even those new to the organization and team design process to expertly guide a group through the self-design process. Stressing self-learning throughout, the authors help managers, consultants, and other change agents facilitate the kind of interactive group process that results in a truly viable design plan.
Tracking each of the workbook’s nine modules, the Leader’s/Facilitators Guide provides:
- Suggestions for guiding the flow of sessions
- Key points to present to the group
- Group discussion ideas
- Tips for helping the group carry out workbook exercises
Group leaders and facilitators also learn to recognize issues of particular importance to their organization, accommodate group conflicts and anxieties, involve others in the organization, and much more. Because many facilitators will want to increase their familiarity with the author’s design concepts, cross-references to their book, Designing Team-Based Organizations: New Forms for Knowledge Work, are also included.
