Instructions

Go round - Each person give your name and one thing you want from this meeting.

To the whole group:

What was a word or phrase you heard someone else say?

Any surprises?  
What are similarities in what we said we want? Uniquenesses?
How would you summarize what our mandate is for this meeting?

Follow-Up Required: Relate how the meeting plans reflect the mandate.

Usual or Expected Outcomes: Common themes, consensus on what is needed from the day

Potential pitfalls: If participants say very little in the first go-round, there will be little data to draw common themes from. If participants' answers are very different from what the facilitator had planned to do, they will have to change their plan.
