We have provided some suggested questions for organisations to evaluate and provide evidence to help them to learn more about their culture and potential areas of improvement.
This is an essential step to give clubs and groups the chance to reflect and have the opportunity to put mechanisms in place to help improve and create a more open, safer culture.
How the Culture Self Evaluation Works
This Self-Evaluation is designed to give you the chance to reflect on the culture in your club or group. This dedicated time to reflect gives you the opportunity to put mechanisms in place to help improve and create a more open, safer culture.
You’ll be asked whether you strongly agree, agree, disagree, strongly disagree or whether you’re not sure about a set of statements. There are 5 statements in each part of the self evaluation: Listen, Learn, Lead. You’ll be asked 15 statements in total and encouraged to add some evidence to support your answer.Download the Culture Self Evaluation for Clubs & Groups
