Hi David,

Thanks for the trackback.

It is an interesting point you raise, about authentic facilitation. Many new to facilitation start off with the recipe approach. Which is the only way, really, that one can start. But to be able to bring a process to life, you eventually need to learn when to leave the structure, and move out into that unstructured territory.

Bob Dick summed it up really nicely by saying "You need to be a cook first and a chef later".

I think the tension between structure and no-structure is a really important one for facilitators and groups.

This tension seems to get reflected into style.

Warm regards,
Andrew
