Conversation safeguards

Experience with SSD conversations has shown it useful to operate a system of "guarantors" to safeguard the process. Guarantors might be appointed (and rotated) to monitor adherence to:

The selected theme

Opportunity for equal participation

Honouring diversity and every contribution made

Developing team rules and spirit

Establishing common ground

Being open to emerging/new ideas

Shared leadership and other roles

Rotation of responsibility, hopefully by a system of individual volunteers, can provide an additional benefit of fostering personal development.
