How much group discussion is too much?
I co-facilitated a full-day, off-site retreat for a company (comprised of nine team members) yesterday. All in all, it went really well.
However, the one tricky thing was having to continually tamp down the urge from the team to venture into free-for-all discussion land. I kept feeling like I was the "time sheriff," cutting folks off who wanted to open the floor for group discussion.
Any advice on how to allow for some discussion but still keep things tight and on track?
Note: We set expectations at the start of the workshop... explaining the concept of "work together, alone," noting that we'd be moving quickly, and showing them/using the time timer.
