This foundation-level training manual for social work students and practitioners will help readers become more effective agents of change through understanding the meaning, principles, and characteristics of facilitative leadership. Facilitative leadership is a form of leadership in which the leader directs a group but does not dictate the outcome of the group discussion. This form of leadership is essential for, and uniquely suited to, social workers whose entire profession is based on helping clients determine their own goals and how to achieve them.

The book describes, step-by-step, the skills needed to successfully perform formal and informal leadership roles in group, agency, and community settings. All aspects of the facilitative process are addressed, including the phases of group development, how to organize a meeting, when and how to intervene, and how to know if facilitative leadership is working. The book explains how facilitative leadership relates to the social work code of ethics, and discusses the ground rules for effective communication. A number of leadership theories that inform facilitative leadership are examined. The text also includes skill building and critical reflection exercises in each section along with case studies to enhance learning.
