Discussion Leader Guide

Welcome to the Discussion Leader Guide for the

Labs that Work for Everyone program

LTW is a professional development program designed to help participants consider their own values and develop their professional skills to manage themselves and their careers. The role of facilitated discussion sessions is to provide structure and space for participants to grapple with the material and engage in reflection. The goal of these sessions is not to “teach” content or impose anyone’s views, but rather to help guide people through a process together

This guide is intended to provide ideas on how to structure and lead discussions focused on the LTW program. You are in no way obligated or expected to complete or relay the guide in its entirety. Use this guide as a road map. 

One thing to keep in mind is that how you conduct these discussions is not one-size-fits-all. Expect some discomfort, especially if you are not used to this style of conversation or to discussing these kinds of topics.
