Generalizations and Examples

 I'm revising and simplifying a leadership class. The old version is packed with practical material and that's a problem because you need to give class members the chance to ponder, digest, and remember.

Generalizations are used to present key concepts.

Examples are used to show how those concepts operate in real life.

Both groups need balance. 

Too many generalizations produce fog. 

Too many examples and people get lost in the nitty-gritty.

I have enough material for a large feast, but I need to reduce it to a simple meal.
