Once you have gathered input, make sure to recognize and celebrate strengths first. This will allow your team to continue to be successful in areas that are creating engagement! The goal of discussion is to answer the following questions rather than problem-solve:
- Which issues are the most important to address, given our goals and priorities?
- Which issues will get in our way if we don’t address them?
- Which issues are not a high priority, even if they could use improvement?
The video below offers an example of conducting an effective follow-up discussion.
