Hints & Tips

The following questions are useful as a check-list at the start of an initiative and will help prior to the commencement and throughout delivery:

  • How will we maintain our confidence or restore it if it dips?
  • Where will our social support come from?
  • How will we ensure we try and remain adaptable?
  • How can we maintain our focus during the life of the initiative?
  • How can the team support each other through a change?
