Guiding a group through personal reflection
In order to change the way people converse, Grant and Jay ask everyone to focus on one of their past, failed conversations throughout the workshop.
Open-ended questions conducted anonymously through Poll Everywhere provide a safe space to discuss everyone’s most problematic conversation.
Everyone stays on track because Grant and Jay can directly address responses that are veering off-course.
People own their commitments to change, because they see them appear in print on-screen alongside everyone else’s.
With Poll Everywhere we can tell where people are getting lost, and speak to each of those people within the process. We don’t leave anybody behind.

Incorporate Poll Everywhere
Anonymous Poll Everywhere questions are the centerpiece of effective, guided reflection. It’s step one in helping people identify their roadblocks and move toward success.
The perfect balance: anonymity and openness
Anonymous Poll Everywhere questions let everyone speak honestly from the comfort of their own devices. Even though responses are anonymous, they appear on-screen in front of the whole group. That helps everyone see that they aren’t alone in their problems, and encourages them to speak up and get the coaching they need.
