    Instructions

    Before

    Number of participants: unknown

    During

    "I'd like to get opinions from those who haven't talked for a while."


    Breaking into small groups works even better. Small groups allow shy members to speak up without having to compete for "air time."

    After

    Examples of successes and failures: A common mistake is to say, "Mr Z, you haven't talked much today. Is there anything you'd like to add? This may work when a shy member has non-verbally indicated a wish to speak. But all too often, the quiet person feels put on the spot and withdraws further.

    Background
