Nice! I like how you help build trust in the system and learn from what’s working, not just the problems. Another approach I use is a SOAR analysis (instead of a SWOT analysis). Focusing on Strengths, Opportunities, Aspirations, and Results. Similar to you, this increases trust and strengthens relationships (the positively biased inquiry), and gives you good information on the strengths and what to leverage from the current state to build the future state (incorporating hopes, aspirations, and desired results/impact). Positive Image = Positive Action. Here is an older article I wrote on SOARing from SWOT.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
