How it Works

Talk Shop Format:

  1. Please follow Facilitators directions
  2. Listen only...until your turn: In pre-school we learned our most valuable social skills…including cooperation.
  3. Topics are changeable from person to person…Familiar Ted Talks, books, movies, etc.
  4. Begin by saying “I am _______, this is my PERSPECTIVE and these are my THOUGHTS”
  5. First each person speaks (fast or slow) for a 2-5min Monologue (listeners can remember questions or take notes)
  6. Then we dialogue, where each person gets questions or comments from others.
  7. Allow sensitive monologues to pass with no response, respect personal boundaries…you can personally connect afterward.
