What is PALPaR?

PALPaR is a technique used by presenters to create an effective exchange in response to a proposal. The name of the technique is an acronym for:

  • Present
  • Ask
  • Listen
  • Pause
  • and
  • Reply

To ensure the exchange will be effective, the presenter should prepare specific questions in advance and give the group an opportunity to discuss these questions together before they reply to the presenter. Then, during the Listen step, the presenter should request answers to each question in turn. Finally, the Pause step gives the presenter a moment to check first impulses and consider how best to reply.
