Room setup

  • Chairs arranged in a circle

This activity serves a similar purpose to that of the Catch the Koosh Ball —to help participants re-focus on what was covered in a particular activity or perhaps a segment of the overall leadership event. A review of lessons helps strengthen learning—and thus enhances understanding.

Step-by-Step Instructions 

  1. Initiate the activity by saying, “We’ve all had an extreme day. As one way of evaluating our time together, let’s share with one another some of what we have learned. We will do this by focusing on answers to “sentence stems.”
  2. Pass the printed cards to each person and explain the process. Mention the following, “We will go around the group and hear answers to each question, one at a time. Each participant should respond. Of course, if a question does not relate to you, then feel free to pass or
    provide a question that more clearly conveys what you wish to share. Focus on what you have learned about leadership today.” Participants must not comment on what others say. As the facilitator, your role should be to thank each person for their contribution. Don’t
    explain the answers given by each participant.
  3. Thank everyone for their contributions and suggest that they record their learning in a journal. As you adjourn (for a break, lunch, or the session), you might want to talk further with anyone whose “I learned. . . .” resonated with you.

Activity Review

Take time shortly after conducting this activity to reflect on how it went, how engaged the participants were, and what questions they raised. Make notes that include how much time you actually spent on the activity.
