The process of choosing a time and looking backward to define what you want to Do More Of, and Do Less Of – then – creating action steps will create a better feeling of control and support your progress to change.
Change and solutions happen through many people making small changes constantly.
How will I obtain (gather, capture, understand) and use feedback to improve performance?
It can be overwhelming to create a frame around a challenge. Forcing other people & yourself to share a narrative story using fixed resources, can break the stuckness & fear of the unknown.
Changing perspectives and finding times when the solution has happened or might happen or can happen. Will point to the solution itself, making the problem irrelevant.
Big changes rarely happen instantly. While you are involved in the change your perception is an insider and the change may not even be noticed. This is when a focus on ‘what is working well?’ can be useful.

The guidelines align with team building & executive coaching activities. Illustrating through activities a team and person develop exceptions and see ‘what works’ in a context they’re not used too and is still familiar because they just made it happen.
