Holding Space: A Guide to Mindful Facilitation
The work of skilled facilitators has never been more necessary or important. Opening up the space for dialogue for all is needed now, more than ever. Holding Space: A Guide to Mindful Facilitation is a starting point, intended to make it easier for coaches, facilitators, and leaders to step forward with confidence. Authors Kate Ebner, CEO of The Nebo Company and her colleague Izzy Martens, a certified facilitator, writer and yoga teacher, share stories, lessons, strategies for facilitating important conversations and gatherings.
Holding Space begins with the insight that becoming a great facilitator requires a willingness to look within, including an examination of one’s own beliefs and biases, presence, unique traits and trigger points. Discover how to tap into the practice of mindfulness to “hold space” for others and create extraordinary —even transformational– experiences and outcomes.
