10 strategies for leading more effective group discussions 

One of the key skills for a trainer is the ability to effectively lead group discussions. Discussions help learners to explore content in their own words, reflect upon other people’s viewpoints and strengthen ideas, as well as enabling them to receive a ‘best from the rest’ perspective about the subject matter. However, validating everyone’s comments while keeping the discussion relevant and productive can be challenging.
