Small groups have life cycles, just like people. And there comes a time when every small group dissolves or fades away. But that doesn't mean you should allow your group to experience a premature death.

If your group is experiencing a difficult time, this resource will help you determine whether the situation involves a mild cold or a lethal cancer. And if the prognosis is not fatal, this resource will also give you the tools you'll need to bring the group back to full health.
