The journey is challenging - but the end destination is a worth it
"Optimism is a strategy for making a better future, because unless you believe that the future can be better, you are unlikely to step up and take responsibility for making it so"
Noam Chomsky
-Begin the process of understanding the roles and functions of others within the business
-Find out a bit more about their date, name, place of work and what they do
- Go on a ‘date’ with a colleague you don’t know and haven’t worked with
- Introduce yourself and share a piece of work /case study that illustrates your contribution to the Services vision and purpose

At the end of the date take a contact email or phone number and commit to either:
- Arrange a follow up date to develop the relationship because of common interest or potential joint working; or
- Agree to note contact for future reference.

How do you propose that we continue to foster a cross-service team approach to our work?

What methods can we use to enable and ensure that we work effectively together to realise our vision?

What recommendations would you offer to strengthen how we communicate and work together with one another
