Taking the Work Forward: Action plan/tool kit
If you have reached the end of this workbook, well done. You have put the effort into it this far. But what are you going to do now? This is a way for you to decide your areas of strengths and needs.
Let’s look at the key skills we looked at in this workbook. How would you see yourself now?
Put a score of 1-10 on each one on the lines that would rate the strength in each area for you. 10 is excellent 1 is poor Now join these points up and see what kind of diagram you have. A perfect and balanced life will have scores more towards 10. If your score is skewed in any way, then you’ve some more work to do!
The good news is we know that by putting effort into this work, people can and do improve their skills, supports and resources.
