Developing an action plan for your team or organisation

 

Our strengths approach is based on six core principles. Maximise your impact and remove or adapt weaknesses to enhance your ability to meet your client or staff needs.

SAFETY

Client

Physical and emotional safety. Consistency in your practice. Is there the space and are there procedures to report abuse?

Staff

Do they feel like they belong, receive good induction and can report abuse?

trustworthiness

Client

Evaluate whether clients trust your model and boundaries within your team or organisation?

Staff

Are boundaries transparent and are they and senior leaders accountable?

CHOICE

Client 

Is individual choice and informed consent genuinely part of your client experience?

Staff

Does leadership have embedded processes for regular feedback and contribution for staff input in choices?  Is spontaneity encouraged as well as safety and understanding of risk?

collaboration

Client

Is there genuine input from clients into your services and explanations attached to their options and choices?

Staff

Is your organisation or team genuinely a place of growth, feedback and evaluation?

empowerment

Client

Are they taught skills to succeed and to internalise the learning and support you are providing in a manner that supports self-sufficiency and not dependency?

Staff

Are they meaningfully part of the decision process and are contributions recognised and implemented? Are explanations offered for decisions made in a transparent manner?

cultural, historical and gender issues

Client

Do you provide interventions acknowledging and respecting diversity across cultures, ethnicities and gender differences?

Staff

Do you have policies and procedures that meaningfully include and are responsive to all forms of diversity?
