Roles

  • Debriefer who is skilled at facilitating the group process, who is culturally sensitive, and who is generally only observing the modeling exercise

Steps

  1. The debriefer assembles the modeling team and announces the start of the debriefing session.
  2. The debriefer reviews the process the team will use to conduct the review.
  3. The activity begins with a check-in to see how people are doing. This is important regardless of whether the session went well or badly.
  4. Ask the following questions:
    • How are you feeling about how this GMB session went?
    • Overall, did we accomplish what the session was designed to do?
    • What went well during this session?
    • Were there any rough parts for you?
    • What did you learn from this session?
    • How could the session have been improved?

Evaluation Criteria

  • The script should result in a stronger, more cohesive team after the debrief and a list of ways to improve the process
