SALT at the NAPS (National AIDS Programme Secretariat)

Today we did the Self Assessment Framework with some members of our Staff. It was abit challenging at first, but we came out quite good at the end. At the After Action Review, I came up with that we started with a one SALT and ended with the desired SALT.
The SALT we started with was

S- Suspicion
A- Apprehension
L- Lukewarm
T- Tension

We did well at end

Thanks to USA

Dear Nazim,

I appreciate the way you and your team started the SALT. So true for many organizations we see everyday. We struggle but stay back to the old habits. But a pinch of SALT can change all from suspicion to stimulate, apprehension to appreciation ,lukewarm to warm learning and tension to transfer.

Thanks Nazim! This is indeed self assessment and it is about strengths - bringing across that we are all human. We all have something to share and we all have something to learn. Beautiful to hear how you as facilitators have been able to make that shift!
Marlou - staying tuned for more stories from other Guyana groups doing their self assessment this week :)

Thanks for you comment Usa. It was very interesting looking at the SALT way of working and try to see how it work in some order in some communities in Guyana. Playing around with the letters, I realised that LAST is somewhat approriate in some ways. We can first go into a community and LEARN and LISTEN (research) about their various strenghts and APPRECIATE and ASSESS what they have in their community and the STIMULATE and SUPPORT them to improve so that they can move forward in a more cohesive manner as a TEAM, so that they can their dreams can LAST a lifetime, or even more.

Thanks for you comments Marlou. I think the turning point came when our fellow team members felt comfortable with the Self Assessment Framework, and when they were able to appreciate that we were interested in each others strenghts and not really focusing on the weakness of a particular NAPS team member. This was a unique activity, since all the TEAM members came out of another but different Assessment slightly battered and bruised (last month)

Thank you for sharing this, Nazim. Could you also share the other point that we discussed, why you think SALT should in fact be LAST? I'm sure it will be interesting to other friends!

Thanks Nazim, great that you are sharing the first experiences in Guyana with us. I encourage others to look at your pictures as well. Tell me, what was the turning point from Suspion to Support, from Apprehension to Apprecation, from Lukewarm to learn and from Tension to Transfer?
