When we come to the end of a project or activity, it is common to review the outcomes. It can be very easy to consider these outcomes from a negative perspective, what went wrong rather than what went right. Next time you need to review a project, try looking at its successful outcomes. At the very least, try balancing each negative consideration with a positive.

Negative/neutral question Success-focused alternative
What went wrong? What went right?
What are our needs? What are our strengths?
What did we learn? What did we learn to do better?
What issues should we put on the agenda? What issues can be taken off the agenda?
How can we improve? What strengths could we make more use of?
What’s missing from this group? What are the assets of this group?
What would you do differently next time? What would you do the same next time?
What do you want to achieve? What is your recipe for success, and how will you apply that?
