The Debriefing Thumball helps facilitators ask debriefing questions in a proper sequence that makes sense to participants. It can also shift some of the responsibility for successful processing from the facilitator to the participants. The sequence of 1. What happened, 2. Why is this important, and 3. How can I use this information, not only takes participants through a progression for processing a specific event, but also presents an overall lesson on proper processing.
Just look under your thumb and share your reaction to to the prompt. Thumball™ is a soft 6" stuffed ball pre-printed with 32 questions or prompts and LOADS of interesting applications for meetings, training, and employee relations.
This unique Thumball has been designed for training purposes by Training Wheels, Inc.
Here are a few examples of questions for this Thumball:
- Orange Fact-Finding Questions: These questions will ask general questions about what happened in the group. It asks factual questions or questions that simply summarize the events of the experience. The questions are intentionally easy to answer as they set the stage for the other two colors of questions.
- Green 'Why-Is-This-Important?' Questions: The green questions ask Why questions and elicit feelings from the participants. They also help participants analyze the significance of the experience.
- Blue Transference Questions: The blue colored questions tie the specific experience to future experiences and to everyday life--after learning from an experience, how can participants apply this knowledge?

I've used before in other meetings. We use these for icebreakers. No one can bow out with this exercise.
