1. A penny for your thoughts

Prepare a mood meter with your team and start using it.

What is a mood meter? It is a tool designed to help us learn to recognize emotions in ourselves and others with increasing accuracy and to develop strategies for regulating (or managing) those emotions. It provides us with a "language" to talk about our feelings. It can be a physical tool or an app. But the important thing is that part of working with this tool is not just filling it out but sharing with the team why you feel the way the mood meter shows you do. We therefore recommend incorporating discussion around the mood meter into regular team meetings..
