Confirming Readiness Before Moving Forward
One way to confirm that your organization is ready to move forward is to ask each person to vote using a simple yes or no format. The team will be more likely to make real changes in HCBS if 80% or more of the people involved vote in favor of implementing person-centered and positive support practices. Small provider teams can send out an email to ask staff and people supported to vote. Another option is to ask a team member to attend a regular meeting to check in with staff. Larger providers:
- Use staff meetings,
- Email a survey out to everyone, or
- Ask managers to gather votes from staff members.
Each provider can decide the best way to find out if people are ready to improve services using person-centered and positive support practices.
Please use the MN Team Checklist and the HCBS Planning Tool to complete the activity.
Checklist Item 9: The team assesses how ready people are to work on person-centered and positive practices.
