Original Intent of The Journey of Facilitation

The field of Process Facilitation has only been named as a professional field over the last 20 years.  The professional association, the International Association of Facilitators, began in 1994. But the art of guiding groups in meetings to engage people and to accomplish group tasks has been around for a much longer time.  I have been fortunate to be a part of this field for more than 40 years.  These are my occasional musings on the development of the art and the trend toward meaningful participation in decision-making from my personal experience.

About jofacilitator

On Sept 1, 2020, I celebrated 50 years of work with the Institute of Cultural Affairs, facilitating meetings, groups, communities, and organizations, making it possible for ordinary people to have a voice in decisions that affect their lives. I retired on December 31, 2021, but still volunteer with the organization.
