Motivating Language Role-Playing Scenarios

These exercises are designed both for small groups of three and as individual exercises.1 The group exercises are done face-to-face, while the individual exercises may be approached as written exercises or just as thought-provoking exercises that will better prepare you for situations in which you can utilize motivating language to be a more effective leader.
