When I’m running an exercise, I’m not sure how far I can “push” the participant to get more out of them without them thinking that I’m pushing them in some particular direction

When I ask additional questions of one participant during an evaluation, these are also questions for those who will speak afterwards. If I have five people who have put their hands up to speak, and I expect that the second speaker will provide valuable insight, I will ask the question of the first person, letting the second have some time to think about it, and then I would repeat the question to them. You will assess each individual situation to decide how many additional questions and how much insistence is necessary, and you should rely on support. Glance over to see what the others think, perhaps they can chime in with an additional question so that you don’t feel like you are the one pushing too hard. Don’t forget to work together.
