Are You Engaging Everyone?

Are You Engaging Everyone?

Don't leave any of your group members behind.

Most small groups are made of a mixture of people—differences in age, marital status, learning styles, gender, or even spiritual maturity. And everyone can learn a lot through this kind of diversity. On the other hand, diversity makes it more likely that we'll leave someone out in our discussions.

Use this Assessment Pack to determine if you're engaging everyone in your group—and gain great ideas for getting everyone involved. Discover whether you're sharing ownership, appealing to multiple learning styles, and more.
