Title: Facilitative Leadership: One Approach to Empowering Staff and Other Stakeholders
Author(s): Moore, Thomas L.
Subject(s): Leadership in libraries Library organization
Abstract: This article defines facilitative leadership as advocated by Roger Schwarz and describes the use of this relatively new leadership approach in a public library system. It lists and defines the four core values followed in Schwarz’s approach: valid information, free and informed choice, internal commitment, and compassion. It further describes the use of left-hand column cases as developed by Chris Argyris to identify one’s own theory in use. Model one and model two theories in use as developed by Argyris are discussed. The article then briefly describes the experiences of using the Schwarz principles in a library organization.
