There are a number of ways to motivate participation including:

  •   Turn questions back to the group
  •   Record all ideas, using their own words, and make them visible by posting them on flip chart sheets
  •   Ask for examples from the group members’ own experiences
  •   Look for and point out merit, even in inappropriate answers
  •   Avoid arguments and making right/wrong judgments
  •   Express confidence in the group
  •   Give complete reasons for directions
  •   Keep notes and live up to follow-up commitments
  •   Give constructive feedback and build behaviors through positive reinforcement
