“For interactive sessions to be impactful, they need to be well organized—not only with a clear activity in mind—but also with report-outs & follow through.” —Cathy Aster
“Make sure tasks have deadlines (reasonable ones), and set up regular conference calls to keep things rolling.” —Jody DeRidder

General Guidelines

We recommend the following set of general guidelines for group leaders:

Getting in Touch with Past and Present DLF Group Leaders

Past and present coordinators of our existing groups are also a great resource, and in our experience they are always eager to share. Do you admire what an existing DLF group has accomplished? Get in touch with leadership and ask how! (We're happy to connect you if it's not obvious who to ask.)

“You will lose people along the way – don’t fret it.  Focus on where the energy is, and keep the ball rolling by engaging the ones with the energy.” —Jody DeRidder
