- A few examples of what could be done in a workplace to ADDRESS this Factor if it has been identified as a problem.
- One “conversation starting” question to be posed to the learning group regarding this Factor.
- A short list (3-5) of recommended resources if people wanted to learn more about this Factor. These should be ones you found particularly helpful.
