Facilitating Large Groups
Posted 26 February 2014 5:00 AM by Elaine La Chappelle
Over the years I’ve often been asked to increase the number of participants at our leadership courses. The way the courses are designed, the ideal number of participants is 20 – 30. With groups larger than that it can be challenging to get the same results. Either time runs out or participation is lost. Despite my hesitance, there are times when it makes sense to increase the group size. I’ve learned that with some planning and revisions, you can ensure that larger groups get great value from classroom training; however, the onus is on the facilitator to adapt.
