The tools and how to use them

If you haven’t already, check for Signs of immediate danger.  This might affect what you do next.

The tools in this topic are organised for checking how you are doing: 1) at the beginning or end of a meeting, and 2) before and after taking an action. 

A meeting will usually end with tasks to be done. End of meeting Guiding Questions makes sure that these are clear and there is a plan to make them happen.

What are next steps Guiding Questions helps figure out the next steps, and can be used in the meeting.  As you are about to take those steps, you can use Are you ready for the next steps Guiding Questions.

After a task, Reflecting on an action Guiding Questions can help think about how it went.  This is sometimes called an evaluation.  It will work best if you do it together.

It sometimes helps for individuals or groups to think about how they have been doing.  Individual self-check Guiding Questions helps individuals think about how they are contributing to the process.  Groups can use Group self-check Guiding Questions.

Closing an intervention Guiding Questions can help with any follow up when your intervention is ending.
