This is a set of good practices for chairs of any type of group. This list is meant to complement the good practices specific to each group type.

See also "the Guide/HumanDimension" - dealing with People (since Working Groups tend to be full of them).

Good practice

  • Welcome participants and invite them to introduce themselves on the public list.
  • Identity participants for various roles:
  • Establish group policies:
  • Foster constructive communication
    • List etiquette
    • Remind participants of confidentiality expectations (when discussions are in Member space, for example).
    • Glossary of terms (to avoid misunderstandings)
  • Set expectations around meetings
  • Set up or request tools and infrastructure
