THE 4 D’S
4 Steps to Strengthen Your Team Through Any Crisis
Break the cycle of burning precious time, resources and personnel. Fortify your organizational core and get better results by gathering key influencers and decision makers around this simple exercise. Use the 4D’s to easily identify core areas that either need more attention, or can be better leveraged to improve workplace wellness and resiliency.
Discover what THRIVE means for you and your organization. Discover how mental health plays a role by uncovering personal motivations, shared initiatives and unspoken boundaries. Discover hidden strengths, characteristics, and qualities that are waiting to be better leveraged in your team, departments and organization.
Determine the outcome you are aiming for with your new workplace shifts (such as better mental health practices; better communication). Determine the desired results, and means of measuring them for effectiveness/impact. Knowing where you are going, specifically, is the only way to uncover the necessary and proactive steps it will take to get there.
Develop a strategy to leverage programs, personnel, experts, courses, and other tools. Recognize that development does not mean having “one single answer” for everything. It requires periods of research, observation, support, adaptation and being open to trying new things. Come up with a plan to revisit your efforts on a regular basis to avoid falling off course.
Deploy your strategy and give your organization (or teams and leaders) a period of time to test, modify and redevelop as necessary. Pay attention to results and make sure that they are replicable. It is the practice of revisiting the ‘design-build-evaluate-refine-evaluate’ process that creates long term measurable results. It is not a “once and done” mindset. Leadership must stay at the front, and encourage teams to continue driving towards solutions based on the previously agreed ‘Discovery and Determination’ steps.
