Good stuff in that outline. Two questions that we always ask at our end-of-year meeting that I find particularly helpful are “What strengths do we need to maintain next year?” and “What deficiencies do we need to correct?”
After one very, very hard year our staff had a meal together for the purpose of discussing the year’s difficulties. This proved to be a helpful way of processing things and moving on. It might be good to plan an informal gathering like this to provide a relaxed space for dealing with the year’s emotional consequences.
And make sure you have lunch together. Order pizza or have a potluck or something. I’ve found that the best, most productive conversations at our beginning- and end-of-year staff meetings often happen during lunch, not during the meeting itself.
