Ted Talks Discussion Guideline
• Try to offer something meaningful to the discussion. Avoid bringing in pet complaints, favorite topics, etc., unless they are directly relevant to the topic at hand.
• Wait your turn. Do not interrupt others. This includes side commentary.
• Respect time and need for all to contribute. Acknowledge and yield to group leader's cues to finish your statement.
• Respect all participants. Refrain from making disparaging remarks about other participants and the group leader during the discussion. Participants may be directed to leave if using disrespectful tones or statements.
• Racist, sexist or other forms of hate speech will not be tolerated. You will recieve one warning. After that, you will be asked to leave the meeting.
• Group leader reserves the right to determine what is appropriate, when boundaries have been crossed, etc.
• Group leader determines who gets to talk and for how long. Depending on group size and temperment, this may include formal time limits.
• If you believe a participant has gone off topic, you may signal this by knocking on the table.
