About the Author:

Bruce Williams has more than thirty five years of international consulting experience, and is noted for his expertise in group facilitation and in planning and team building methodologies. Williams' specialty is facilitating participative, interactive group workshops whether they are focused on strategic planning and consensus building or instructional methodologies for the classroom. He has conducted successful workshops on brain compatible learning and school change facilitation, and he frequently presents in the areas of cooperative learning, higher order thinking skills, and authentic assessment. With seven years' experience in teaching English as a second language in Japan and Korea, Williams is highly experienced in working with diverse populations. Thirty-six years' experience in adult training also make him a valuable resource in facilitating school change. In addition to conference workshops in 2002 in Australia and New Zealand, he has been invited three times to present workshops for teachers in Singapore. In April of 2004, Williams was the keynote speaker for 400 principals and teachers in Beijing.

Review:

"Shows leaders of the educational change process how to develop the flexibility, openness, and trust needed to make change as painless and effective as possible. By acquiring the skills of the facilitator, leaders of the change process will know how to navigate uncharted pathways, develop the required skills of their fellow participants, communicate openly and honestly, seek consensus, make intelligent decisions, and solve problems amidst the dynamics of the change process itself and among the many different constituencies that are part of the process." (From the Foreword by Arthur L. Costa 2007-09-04)

"The book deals with an time-sensitive and time-intensive topic, and its worth will only be known when it is purchased and used by serious educational entities." (Lori Grossman, Instructional Coordinator for Professional Development Services 2007-09-20)

"The principles and ideas presented are not just for school improvement. Many of the materials can be used for an entire gamut of situations. There is something for everyone." (Lyndon Oswald, Principal 2007-09-20)
