The Road Ahead’s index shows exercise pages that correspond to the thinking patterns and each reproducible written exercise comes with a leader discussion plan.
- Skill Train with Directed Practice – Use the facilitator discussion plans provided with each written exercise to lead group discussions that emphasize personal applications and result in personal commitments to do something positive, different, and specific.
