25th January: Check-In and Check-Out 

Checking in and checking out is a simple way for a team to open and close a process, symbolically and collaboratively. Checking in/out invites each group member to be present, seen and heard and to express a reflection or a feeling. Checking in emphasises presence, focus and group commitment; checking out emphasises reflection and symbolic closure. Together, they also ensure that you understand people’s expectations, meet people’s needs, and evaluate the process.
