Why Didn't You Warn Me?
How to Deal with Challenging Group Members
by Pat J. Sikora

What problems do you face in your small group? Is Griselda gossiping? Is Quentin too quiet? Is Rhonda always chasing rabbits? Is Charlie too argumentative? Is Mona always talking?

Leading a small group can be both exciting and rewarding. But sometimes, it can also be frustrating. What do you do when one or two group members create problems you don’t know how to handle?
• Do you know how to gently teach members new group skills?
• Do you know how to change a member’s behavior without being overbearing?
• Must you sacrifice your group for the sake of one needy person?

Why Didn’t You Warn Me? addresses 18 common problems that well-meaning people create in small groups and it give s you step-by-step suggestions for dealing with them with grace and sensitivity.
