Emma and her fellow students chose the Car approach because …
The body of the car … is the structure that keeps everything together.
The wipers … give clear vision on impending set goals; and having a clear image about what an individual wants and how to improve their wellbeing.
The engine … ensures the smooth running of the organisation; and keep staff together by making sure policies and legislation are followed.
The steering wheel … keeps the journey of life heading forward, even if the path meets a bump in the road.
The sun visor … provides a shield for when things get too much and helps to see things clearly.
The accelerator and brake … life speeds up or slows down for the people we meet on the journey.
The sat-nav … navigates the various options of routes and paths to take.
The glove box … is a place to keep your personal values – they are there at all times but sometimes need to be kept in the box.
The radio … listening to other people’s opinions (multi-agency working).
The lights … if it gets really dark, you can put your lights on, ask for help from your peers and management.
The windows … are reflective and provide various views out of each, promoting culture and diversity. Also provide a transparency and full assessment of the surroundings.
The MOT and servicing … ensure the system is working properly.
The fuel … to be able to function.
The indicators … signal to and from people, about what you and they are going to do.
