Anyone who has ever had to lead a group knows the importance of getting the audience involved early and keeping its attention throughout. This book aims to meet that challenge. Lorraine Ukens has gathered a collection of 75 brief, hands-on exercises that rely on active participation in the learning experience itself. Users can facilitate each activity in fifteen minutes or less. The exercises can be used to raise the level of comfort of participants, jump-start a training session, energize a presentation or present a quick and to-the-point group challenge that stimulates discussion.
