4 plus 1 questions
The '4 plus 1 questions' person-centred thinking tool is powerful when used in meetings or reviews, or to look at a particular aspect of someone’s life.
It focuses discussion on four main questions: What have you tried? What have you learned? What are you pleased about? What are you concerned about? The answers to these questions lead to the ‘plus 1′ question – based on what we know, what should we do next?
What it does
It can help people to think about a particular challenge or situation and plan for change. Because the 4 plus 1 questions are answered by more than one person, it groups together learning from different perspectives.
How it helps?
It can be used to update a one-page profile, or to review a project or plan. It is a quick way to work out better ways of supporting people or working together.
