Roy Bennet emphasizes the importance of communication in personal and professional development and the need to work on communication actively. Bennett often discusses the importance of listening and respecting the views of others.
What about facilitation? Bennett does not address the subject specifically. However, he emphasizes the importance of active listening, respect for others' views, and effective communication in his writing. A facilitator with these traits creates trust and openness, promoting collaboration and problem-solving.
Bennett also stresses leadership. A facilitator who takes charge of a discussion and encourages participation can help to guide the group toward achieving its goals.
