  • Developing Individual Team Member Profiles: Utilise person-centred thinking to create one-page profiles for each team member, highlighting their strengths, preferences, and the support they need, fostering a supportive and understanding team environment.
  • Setting Team Goals and Values: Engage the whole team in identifying and agreeing on shared values and goals that reflect a person-centred approach, ensuring that these underpin all aspects of the team’s work.
  • Regular Reflective Practice Sessions: Implement regular team meetings focused on reflective practice, allowing team members to discuss experiences, share learning, and collectively problem-solve issues from a person-centred perspective.
  • Utilising Person-Centred Communication Strategies: Adopt inclusive and respectful communication techniques within the team, ensuring that all team members feel heard and valued, mirroring the approach taken with individuals supported by the team.
  • Adopting a Collaborative Approach to Decision Making: Make decisions collaboratively, involving all team members where possible, to reflect the person-centred principle of empowerment and shared responsibility.
  • Personalising Team Development: Identify individual and collective learning needs through a person-centred lens, tailoring training and development opportunities to meet these needs and enhance the team’s effectiveness.
  • Implementing Person-Centred Reviews: Conduct regular person-centred reviews of the team’s work and processes, focusing on what is working well and what could be improved, ensuring the team continuously evolves to meet the needs of those they support.
  • Creating a Supportive Team Culture: Foster a team culture that prioritises empathy, respect, and understanding, both within the team and in interactions with those they support, embodying person-centred values in every aspect of the team’s operation.
  • Encouraging Individual Responsibility: Empower team members to take responsibility for aspects of the team’s work that align with their strengths and interests, promoting engagement and a sense of ownership.
  • Using Person-Centred Planning Tools: Apply person-centred planning tools, such as good day/bad day analysis or important to/important for discussions, to team development and problem-solving, enhancing team dynamics and effectiveness.
  • By integrating person-centred thinking into the fabric of the team’s operations, teams can not only enhance the support provided to individuals but also create a more positive, cohesive, and effective working environment for team members.
