YLT-Start, Stop, Continue

Everyone has a variety of strengths and weaknesses that make them who they are! Record your bad habits under ‘Stop’, habits that help with your weaknesses under ‘Start’, and your strengths under ‘Continue’. You could make a chart, a word cloud, have a discussion, make a video, or make a speech about your skills, what you want to do to improve yourself, and how you can curb your bad habits. Taking time to learn about yourself is a big part of being a responsible leader, and will help you be the best leader you can be

Keep it Simple

It might be scary to do this on your own – start by thinking about your Section or Team. What things should you stop doing? What should you start doing? What should you continue doing? 

Take it Further

Don’t just create a list of things to start doing, create a plan! Look at the things that you want to start doing, and make a concrete plan to make those changes!
