Adam Kahane - Author of "Facilitating Breakthrough"

Episode 171 of the Business Bookshelf podcast - Adam Kahane - author of "Facilitating Breakthrough: How to Remove Obstacles, Bridge Differences, and Move Forward Together"

Adam is a leading organizer, designer and facilitator of processes through which business, government, and civil society leaders can work together to address such challenges. He has worked in more than fifty countries, in every part of the world, with executives and politicians, generals and guerrillas, civil servants and trade unionists, community activists and United Nations officials, clergy and artists.


Adam is the author of “Facilitating Breakthrough: How to Remove Obstacles, Bridge Differences, and Move Forward Together”. Making progress on complex, problematic situations requires a new approach to working together: transformative facilitation, a structured and creative process for removing the obstacles to fluid forward movement.


It is becoming less straightforward for people to move forward together. They face increasing complexity and decreasing control. They need to work with more people from across more divides. In such situations, the most common ways of advancing—some people telling others what to do, or everyone just doing what they think they need to—aren't adequate.


This book describes a new approach: transformative facilitation. It doesn't choose either the bossy vertical or the collegial horizontal approach: it cycles back and forth between them. Rather than forcing or cajoling, the facilitator removes the obstacles that stand in the way of people contributing and connecting equitably. It enables people to bring their whole selves to the process.


I talk to Adam about:

  • Transformative facilitation.

  • Vertical and Horizontal facilitation.

  • And what you need to be a master facilitator.
