Conversation 1 : [re]focus

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