Social and Moral Discourse Circle

How often does your unit talk about the social and moral issues of our time in a calm and thoughtful manner?

For most units or teams, the answer is probably, “not lately.” Devote a periodic meeting (perhaps once per month or every other month), or a portion of one, to discussing current social and moral issues facing your community, state, or the nation.

Topics may include racism, sexism, marriage equality, or gun violence.

  • How do these issues affect your clients?
  • Your state or tribal agency?
  • Your unit? Your agency?

GOAL:

To encourage discourse on social/moral issues and understand their relationship to the agency’s mission.

RELEVANT FOR:

  • Middle Manager
  • Supervisor
