Facilitating Genius: Illuminating Brilliance in Your Organization is a practical guide for leaders, executives, facilitators, and coaches on the art and science of creative problem-solving. This book is the product of 10+ years of research and the lessons learned from providing professional services to clients from private, public, and non-profit organizations.
In Facilitating Genius, the author draws on his experience as a certified facilitator and leadership coach. He briefly introduces the theory of multiple intelligences, shares 25 short vignettes of genius achievement, and offers four case studies where the reader can then test their problem-solving skills as they "consult" with the geniuses revealed in this book.
Readers are encouraged to identify the type of "smarts" they possess and can easily do so by way of the links provided in this book. Each of the eight intelligences are defined and at least three representative geniuses for each type are offered in this text. This book is well illustrated and has quotes and prompts embedded into each of the 25 sample stories of extraordinary achievement. And as an added bonus there are worksheets provided for the reader to use individually or in small groups within his or her organization.
