Materials

    Instructions

    Before

    Setting: End of meeting. Personal notebook, handheld organizer, or piece of paper.

    Types of participants: All

    Time needed: 3 minutes

    Ideal conditions: Just before ending time

    Pre-Work Required: none

    Facilitator personality fit: Ability to create and allow personal silent thinking time.

    Level of Difficulty to Facilitate (to be deleted during review): No specific skills required


    During

    Ask each person to find a piece of paper they will see later and write down their personal commitment to following through on the meeting: i.e. finish the sentence "I will..."


    After

    Follow-Up Required: Ask if anyone wants to share -- I usually tease that extroverts need to declare their commitment out loud to really believe it....

    Usual or Expected Outcomes: Personal commitment

    Potential pitfalls: No way to actually know that people made a commitment related to the topic, because it is silent

    How success is evaluated: Sometimes a few people will share out loud. Real success is when people follow through on their personal commitments.

    Background

    Source: Jo Nelson

    History of Development: From watching people say "politically correct" commitments out loud, and introverts struggle with time to reflect.
