📙 Standing in the Fire: Leading High-Heat Meetings with Clarity, Calm, and Courage by Larry Dressler, narrator John Pruden


4.3


Many experienced facilitators, OD consultants, coaches, and organizational leaders increasingly find themselves standing in the fire - working in situations where group and community members are polarized, angry, fearful, and confused. Facilitator Larry Dressler has come to believe that simply picking up yet another method or technique wont help in situations like these. What has a truly transformational impact is what he calls the "facilitators presence". Cultivating an ability to access a compassionate presence that people experience as open, authentic, and clear in intention during the most difficult situations moves facilitators from being competent professionals to being on a path toward self-mastery. ©2010 Larry Dressler (P)2010 Audible, Inc.

"A Convener's Professional Development Resource"

This book is intended for anyone who considers themselves a convener and who often finds themselves in the midst of heated discussion. It is divided into three sections: the first describes the nature of high-heat situations and what it takes to facilitate effectively, the second describes six ways of standing in the fire that are interconnected and occur simultaneously, and the third outlines practices that conveners can use to deepen their abilities to implement the six ways of standing in the fire. Throughout the book, the reader is encouraged to reflect on their own practice and choose areas to strengthen. For practitioners of this kind of work, it's a great resource to revisit repeatedly for long-term professional development.

"For Alll Who Work with Groups"

This book is for OD professionals, facilitators, leaders and other who find themselves seeking to work in the group context. It details how one can deal with anger, resentment, high tension and other issues that often take us by surprise. This is not a book about presentations; it is a book about behavioral issues related to working with groups. Dressler tells us how to such things as how to deal with personal “hot buttons” and how to get along when things don’t go as “planned.” The book can be repetitious. A lot is borrowed from “self help books” and pop-like psychology. However, the book affirmed methods that I have had to learn the hard way through trial and error. It is a book anyone working with groups might find helpful and informative. Well read by John Pruden.
