Powerful Questions from Agile Coaches to Help Your Family Prioritize What Matters Most
Who are we?
What’s special about us?
What really matters to us?
What is the change or maintenance we’re seeking together?

Establish ‘Working Agreements’ & a Check-in Cadence
From the beginning and throughout the lifetime of your family’s prioritization and celebration together, craft working agreements and have discussions about:
Transparency: How could we improve visibility into our progress?
Communication: How are we enjoying working together, and what might improve our communication?
Responsibility: Have our responsibilities changed or do they need to change?
Trust: How have we built our relationships on a trusting foundation?
Safety: Do we continue to maintain a psychologically safe environment in which we may all grow?
Agreements: Are our agreements serving our purpose and meeting our needs?
