is at the heart of everything Family Guiding does.  C.R.E.A.T.E. is an easy to remember acronym that reminds people of all the components that are necessary for growth: 

Collaboration,  Recognition,  Equipping with skills,  Acknowledgement,  Tracking, and  Evaluation.

Our model is designed to guide moment-to-moment interactions with an individual and can extend as far as improving the culture of organizations nationwide.

The C.R.E.A.T.E. Outcomes® Model  is used in a variety of settings to help achieve organizational goals by improving communication and team-work among staff members. This model uses industry-leading technology to translate empirical research into everyday tools that anyone can use.

Does your staff need more acknowledgment?
