Assumptions - The Witches of Glum


This exercise will take about 15 minutes to complete. In total, allowing for discussion, we recommend allowing 25 minutes for completion.

• To understand the importance of listening skills.
• To illustrate the dangers of making assumptions.
• To provoke discussion about prejudices and stereotypes.

Group Size:
Suitable for use with groups of almost any size. It is also possible to use this exercise in conference situations.

You'll Need:
• Pens and paper for every participant.

Working in partnership with Trainers' Library members, Voices for Trainers (, we've added a professional recording of the story, which can really add to the experience. The recording can be downloaded and played as an MP3 file on any compatible equipment, including, for example, a laptop or iPod.

However, if you are going to read the story to your group rather than use the recording, we suggest that you rehearse it a few times prior to delivery.
