Assessment & Rating Success Program
Leading with confidence...
Receiving an assessment and rating notification can easily derail your team. But it does not need to be that way! In fact, I would go so far as to say that it can be used as a powerful engagement strategy if approached correctly.
The very words assessment and rating can evoke a sense of stress and anxiety among leaders and their teams. It’s all too common to hear stories of demoralised and disengaged teams after going through this process. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
With Sarah Moore’s expertise in Conversational Intelligence®, you can prime your team for success. Sarah understands why leaders and their teams struggle with the assessment and rating process and provides practical strategies to overcome these challenges.
Her guidance not only prepares you for A&R but also equips you to navigate through all types of change and uncertainty successfully.
At the end of the four weeks, you'll be confident in your skills to:
Build emotional fitness
Prime your team for success
Prepare your centre for assessment
Measure the important checkmarks leading up to the rating process
Create a supportive space for you and your team to understand and communicate their needs while keeping them relaxed and productive.
Build a roadmap for the whole team's success and quell uncertainty.

PREPARE: Ask yourself what story have you created around this event. Is it one that will empower you to create success or is it going to create limitations in your thinking and responses? Plan what is going to happen, before, during and after the A&R visit. What does ‘success’ look like for you as a team? = The process, the outcome, the way in which you do it?
RELATIONSHIPS: Communication is key. As a leader make sure you are ‘present’ for your team. Put relationships before tasks. Be curious about the meaning and beliefs they hold around the visit and spend time reframing, refocusing and redirecting when needed. (Increasing TRUST within your team, so they have an increased sense of safety and are able to emotional regulate..
INITIATE: Co-create a roadmap with your team. Moving from, “I” to “We” dynamics: We are in this together, helping them to see all the different aspects. Identify key milestones in the process. What we aspire to create, making sure the families and children are included in this. Provide a celebration date for everyone so they can see the end point, to positively reflect on the process. Make sure your success is not based on the rating, but in the way in which your team contributed to the process. Provide safety in the knowledge that they know what to expect.
MEASURE: Create check points for you and your team to measure the energy and wellbeing of everyone! Identify a person who can do this as a way of reminding your team that they need to stay grounded and if going into overwhelm they are supported.
EVALUATE: Create a space for your team to consider what support they need through the process and how they can support themselves. (Individually and as a group) Check-ins Q.How well are we doing at supporting ourselves and the team right NOW? Help them to understand how they know that they are doing well? (Future pace theme e.g. when we see ourselves relaxed and productive.)
