Reducing – the impact of what your team are up against.
To reduce the impact of adversity before things happen, you need to anticipate and plan for these challenges. You may be busy with dealing with the current crisis but taking time to collectively think about what your team will face and how these things can be avoided or mitigated will make you more effective when working through the situation together.
Questions to help you to prepare:
- What are we here to do? What can we do? What are the situations and choices that we are facing face?
- What challenging situations have we faced in the past (individually, and as a team) that will help us to deal with the challenges we are now facing?
- What skills and training do we have, individually and collectively, to help us to manage?
