For each opportunity for change, the individual should also ask “What help do I need?” The response to this may generate both explicit and implicit support needs. It may be helpful to think about the type of support you (and others) can provide around three main areas:

  • Empowerment
  • Motivation
  • Capability

It is also important to think about “who” can help, providing the capacity to support.

Effective communications are important whatever the type of support and whoever is providing the support.
