ADR 410 Facilitation fundamentals
part 1) As a Facilitator, conducting any type of group work, there must be certain ground rules in place. For example, in a classroom the teacher/facilitator may enforce a rule which requires the student to raise his or her hand before speaking, thus ensuring a certain amount of control of the discussion process while not chilling the substance of the discussion. Describe a facilitation setting and come up with several ground rules to enhance the facilitation experience. Part 2 Continued from part 1) 1, address one of the six diagnostic steps in the intervention cycle, and just how you might implement in a group you are facilitating.

1.The confident writer:
Read the “Sample Student Anecdote” in this module. What do you think of this anecdote? Why is it so effective (= why does it work well)? Be specific. 150 words
Sample Anecdotes:”I was standing in an elevator, waiting to go back home. A little boy eating an ice cream cone stood next to me. In fact, there were only two of us in the elevator. It seemed like we were waiting a long time. I am a person who dislikes quiet, especially when people stand together, so I decided to break the ice. I looked down at the little boy and tried to make eye contact. However, he was very focused on his ice cream. The quiet, which bothered me very much, didn’t seem to make him uncomfortable at all. “It’s not good for your health to eat ice cream,” I said, with a friendly smile. There was no response. He continued concentrating on his ice cream and didn’t even give me a glance. “My great-grandma lived to be one hundred and three,” he said, finally. “Oh, really?” I replied. “Is that because she ate ice cream every day?” “No,” he said, “she lived a long time because she never minded other people’s business.”

Please read the case and answer the question(s).
Developing Export Markets:
A recent survey by Babson College and the London Business School on entrepreneurship noted that middle-income countries have a larger share of individuals engaged in business ventures with high growth potential than high-income countries. The study also notes that these middle-income countries have higher percentages of people starting businesses. This is partly attributed to the deployment of existing technologies to exploit their comparative advantages. High rates of early-stage entrepreneurship, however, do not necessarily translate into high rates of established business. Rich countries such as Japan, for example, have low levels of early-stage entrepreneurial activity but a large number of established businesses. This is because the start-ups are opportunity-driven companies with lower rates of business failures than those in middle-income or poor countries that are largely motivated by the necessity to earn a living. In rich countries, there is also a tendency for entrepreneurial activity to shift from the consumer such as retailing to business services.
Export of luxury tea from Argentina. During the worst financial crisis in Argentina (2001), three young entrepreneurs founded a luxury tea business with just $10,000. They focused on quality with a view to selling in high-value export markets. The bags are a hand-tied sack of muslin (which does not alter the flavor of the tea) containing one of five types of organic tea: cedron, black-leaf tea, peppermint, Patagonian rosehip, and mate, lightened for the overseas market. They traveled to different parts of Argentina to locate the best growers. After finding suitable suppliers, the partners agreed to create a premium product to be sold in up-market outlets and trendy stores. Over 75 percent of the output is sold in overseas markets: in the United States, United Kingdom, Continental Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Over the last few years, the company has registered substantial increases in sales.
The partners note that 1) exporting maximizes the benefits of selling from countries with weak currencies, 2) it is necessary to focus on quality materials, production, and packaging to charge premium prices, 3) high quality products should be sold in high quality outlets, and 4) it is important to disprove national stereotypes such as lack of punctuality, honesty, etc. with buyers and distributors.
Exports by Rwanda’s nascent entrepreneurs. Rwanda is a small landlocked country with a population of eight million and located in the Great Lakes Region of East-Central Africa. Despite the legacy of genocide and war, the country is showing signs of rapid development. J. Nkubana, one of a number of women entrepreneurs, sells over 5,000 Christmas ornaments and baskets to Macy’s in New York. Another rising entrepreneur, Beatrice Gakuba, founder of Rwanda Floral, is the nation’s largest exporter of roses. She sells over five tons of flowers a week at auctions in Amsterdam. Exporters, however, face a number of challenges in Rwanda: 1) regular electricity outages resulting in lost productivity, 2) Rwanda’s landlocked status requires the use of ports in neighboring countries and this delays shipments and delivery of exports, 3) borrowing costs are high (17 percent interest on loans) and banks require 100 percent collateral. Public funding is almost non-existent to promote exports.

Chapter 4 informs us that the relationship between language and meaning is complex and multi-faceted. One such concept that complicates understanding is semantics (meanings derived from the words themselves). Chapter 4 discusses several ways to improve semantics and lessen the chances for communication breakdown–identify one of these five ways, and provide an example from your life that exemplifies the problem, and explain how that technique would have improved the situation / solved the problem.
Your response should be 1-2 pages, single-spaced, 12-point font, Times New Roman, and the examples you provide from the textbook should be properly cited (APA or MLA format.)
