When the bell rings, find a partner (someone you know less well will be more interesting) and have a conversation about the question. Write down the ideas that resonate with you. 2. When the bell rings again, find another partner and have a new conversation. Put a hand up if you are looking for a partner so you can see who else needs a partner. 3. When the bell rings continuously, stop and find a place to sit.

That makes it easy to move chairs around in many different configurations • If you’re in a space where rows of chairs are stuck to the floor, invite people to stand up, turn around, and talk to the person in the row behind--make a group of three to have a conversation • SMALL tables are much better than big--4-5 people is ideal for deep conversation • Choose a room with natural light if at all possible • Use deliberate designs to structure the sharing and ensure it happens! 7
