The Tea-Brief

What would happen if we took five minutes, just for us?

Tea-brief
A tea-brief is a debrief with a difference. It's an opportunity to take time for reflection, and build stronger relationships in a staff team. You can take a tea-brief after an incident, or can choose to ringfence time for a tea-brief when you're feeling overwhelmed or stressed. Tea-briefs are also about reflection and sharing positive feedback.
