Watch Jeff Sandefer conduct a Socratic discussion on the topic of entrepreneurship. He starts off by setting the rules of engagement, and then launches into a discussion on what is most important to the learners—is it being able to use your gifts, make something with your own hands, serve customers and help people, or make money? 

Conducting a Socratic discussion is a skill in itself. Among other things you need to:

  • Set the stage with rules of engagement.
  • Ask a powerful question.
  • Manage the flow of dialogue and energy of the group.
