Community Conversations

  • Ideally 4-12 people
    • Less than 4? Do an ASK exercise
    • More than 12? Give yourself more time so everyone can speak
      • Or split up and each staff person facilitates and takes notes

Good Facilitator Skills

Be comfortable with silence.

Good Notetaker Skills

Debrief

  • What worked?
  • What did we hear?
  • Strategies?
  • Concerns?

Right After (or asap) a discussion between facilitator and notetaker:
