Task Enabling™ Exercise
The Task-Enabling™ Exercise (TEE) is a reflective process that makes task-enabling, or helping, more visible, intentional, and impactful for you and others. After you reflect on a specific experience of task-enabling and how it was effective or ineffective, the TEE guides you through the process of identifying task-enabling patterns and devising an action plan to make task-enabling an intentional habit.
