It’s natural to feel this way the first time you are asked a question you can’t answer. It will happen and that’s OK. A facilitator is not expected to know everything. During Session 1, when the cohort sets guidelines, set your own guidelines as a facilitator. Let the cohort know, “I won’t have all the answers. Someone else in the room may have more knowledge than me and that’s what we expect. The group knows so much more collectively than any one of us alone. I promise if we don’t have the answer, I will help to locate a resource or someone who can help.”
