Handsignals can make meetings run more smoothly and help the facilitator see emerging agreements. Three simple signals should suffice:

  • Raise a hand when you wish to contribute to the discussion with a general point.
  • Raise both hands if your point is a direct response to the current discussion. This allows you to jump to the head of the queue, so use it wisely and discourage overuse!
  • Silent applause - when you hear an opinion that you agree with, wave a hand with your fingers pointing upwards. This saves a lot of time as people don't need to chip in to say "I'd just like to add that I agree with..."
