The major challenges of our time demand creative and collaborative solutions. But they’re not always easy to come by: we face increasing complexity and, often, decreasing control. We need to work with people across more divides. How can we move forward in ever less straightforward situations?

Adam Kahane presents transformative facilitation as a new way of creating change. By focusing on removing the obstacles to everyone connecting and contributing equitably, he says, we can enable real breakthrough. He offers a guide for how we can all become better mediators; bridging our differences, distributing power, and moving forward together.
