At the start of 2019 I posted one book a day for 100 days on twitter, books that have helped me in my facilitation practice and I made a promise to create one complete list rather than 100+ tweets, so here it is, in no particular order other than the order I tweeted and shared them! Book, Author, Publisher and ISBN numbers… Many are books on facilitation, some on managing change, some on building resilience, some on consultancy and others that are relevant to all of these and more, all of which I have found helpful and YES I have all of them!
