  • Welcome people personally to the room.

  • Allow for note taking time.

  • Call the participants if possible by name.

  • Be passionate about your subject matter

  • Do not inform them that some of the information is boring or dry. Believe in your own content.

Difficult Participant Mistakes

  • If there is a participant bothering others ask them what you can do to help.

  • If someone comes late greet them

  • Make sure you treat the participants as adults, if it is too loud make sure they know a signal to quiet down

  • Ask individuals to turn of phones and other devices that may take away from the presentiaton

  • Make sure that you are leading the group

Co-Facilitation Mistakes

  • Stay in the room while they are presenting to offer help and ease of mind

  • Pay attention to the individual even if you know the material

  • Never disagree in front of the group.

  • Do not depend on the other facilitator to cover something that you are supposed to cover.

Storytelling Mistakes

  • Tell a story without letting the audience know

  • Do not tell the group what they should have gained from the story

  • Make sure the story has a point

  • Make sure the story is short

  • Give credit to the original story giver

  • Use as little sensationalism as possible

Evaluation Mistakes

  • Give individuals evaluations before the start

  • Make sure that they know the evaluation is important to you and them

  • Allow the participant to write their learning goals down on the evaluation

  • Thank everyone for going through with the evaluation

Presentation Mistakes

  • Use eye communication

  • Acronyms and jargon can be overused

  • Make every movement count

  • Do not use a monotone voice

  • Filler words are of course, bad

  • Do not force jokes, let them come naturally

  • Present as yourself, not someone else

  • Leave the personal agenda at home
