Great suggestions thus far!

I would like to add the following ground rule that I got from a book called “The Skilled Facilitator” by Rodger Schwarz.

“Test Assumptions and Inferences”

I little description from the book: When you assume something, you take for granted that it is true without verifying it. When you infer something, you draw a conclusion about what you do not know on the basis of things that you do know. If we simply can ask the question “Is it true”. This is asking a person if what we assumed or inferred is correct. This allows for the conversation in a group to be less polarized and people feel heard.
