Creating a Way to Involve Larger Groups of People

Item 10 on the Minnesota Team Checklist is linked to an earlier item (#3) that you completed in Module 2. Item 3 prompts the team to create a plan for sharing information with everyone. Item 10 makes sure that staff members are actively involved in making decisions during assessment and action-planning. This item is considered complete when the team can show that feedback is being gathered from staff members on a regular basis. It also means that everyone is involved in learning new skills and has a chance to reflect on their work. Staff members are involved in the following:

  • Providing feedback to help make changes in services,
  • Assessing the person-centered strengths of the organization,
  • Participating in trainings, and
  • Assisting the team in finding solutions to problems.

Build in times to talk in meetings that already exist.
