True facilitators will find the description of the facilitator role laughable, at best: "This is a good role for someone who wants more leadership experience but isn't yet ready to be a leader" (p.23)
Perhaps even worse, much of the advice in this small book is too abstract, general and bland to help a novice (leader or otherwise) learn how to plan, carry out and follow through on better meetings. "As you go, summarize and review the progress of the meeting frequently and explicitly. Record the ideas expressed about the most important topics on a flip chart or other tool..." What happened to the Scribe role, and to the separation of leader roles from others? Doyle and Straus gave all of us the huge gift of distinguishing roles in meetings in 1976, with their landmark book, How to Make Meetings Work. No need to mess that up, although in this HBR book I do like the addition of the role of expert, and the naming of participants as contributors.
I wish there were lots more current insights and ideas to like.
