Our Mission

the International Association of Facilitators

This book project is a labour of love for all contributors. Our mission is to promote the power of facilitation worldwide.  We are making the book available for free in order to enable and encourage everyone to read it and to share it. 

We encourage you to make a voluntary donation, of as much as you are able, to the International Association of Facilitators. Please join us in supporting IAF to promote the power of facilitation worldwide. #FacPower 

Our Story

A collaborative team of facilitators and visual practitioners formed to write a book to showcase the power of facilitation. Most of the team are members of the International Association of Facilitators, and many are IAF Certified Professional Facilitators.

The book is a compilation of chapters written by different authors, or author teams, designed to promote the power of facilitation. Each chapter connects key perspectives on specific dimensions of facilitation, organisational and community development with the respective authors’ practice and thinking about our craft.

The team has sought to model a facilitative approach to the project throughout.
