  • Group Ground Rules:Your group will work most effectively when everyone:Respects each others’ opinions & perspectives Stays on time & on agenda topicContributes & ensures everyone is contributing (encourage & allow others to pause/think)Adopt a rule that each person has a maximum 8 minutes/meeting the “T” zone; in other words, to ensure that everyone contributes, everyone must limit their talking to 8 minutes (cumulative) throughout a 90 minute meeting. Some people need time to think, and to quietly consider what they want to contribute. Give them time. Another helpful guideline is to go around the room and ask for each person’s idea/contribution. Once someone has spoken, they can’t contribute again until it is their turn. These guidelines can be relaxed once a group is comfortable working together. Adopt them at the beginning as some people will be much more participative than others and we need to build a discussion environment that works for as many as possible. Acknowledges that everyone is busy and is doing their bestRecognizes that exploring is fun & thought-provoking, especially since we are in the Library sector
