Conversation 1 : [re]focus

The focus (or subsequent re-focus) conversation at the beginning of the annual cycle identifies the important aspects of the team member’s role. The goal is to recognize and select the priority areas and activities that will move the team member and movement forward in both individual development and launching movements.   The conversation clarifies and helps the two of you come to agreement about what the priority areas and activities are.

Timing:
60 minutes Preparation for team member and leader.  Consider:
