The Award-Winning Personal Development Software
An online person centred planning and outcome recording tool that creates a rich story of achievement
"ForMi is a fantastic, effective and simple tool to help to develop people"
What is ForMi?
ForMi is a person-centred planning and outcome recording tool for employees or individuals receiving personalised support. The system makes the whole planning, goal setting and review process come alive and gives ownership to the individual as far as possible which in turn motivates them to achieve and develop. It supports engaging conversations where an individual and their aspirations can be understood and goals developed that are aligned to their strengths.
ForMii consists of three parts:
The App - which individuals use to record progress and communicate with their circle of support. It has a similar feel to social media newsfeed.
The Desktop - which mentors use to review progress help to set goals and recognise achievements
The Story Wall - this is a mini website specific to the individual which houses all their key accomplishments and qualifications.
Outcome focused approach
With the support of a Mentor, each individual creates a strength-based personal profile and set of outcome focused goals. Actions are also agreed that will support the individual to achieve each goal.
These are jointly reviewed at regular intervals, including a judgement of progress against each goal on a 0 to 10 scale. Uniquely, the Individual captures their achievements through words and pictures on a Smartphone, very similar to a newsfeed used on many social media apps.
This has the result of empowering the individual to take ownership of their own development and progress.
Circle of Support
An agreed Circle of Support works with each individual to provide encouragement, coaching, feedback and additional evidence of progression. They also have access to the individual’s story, seeing their achievements in real time. This in turn enables recognition to be given on a continuous rather than periodic basis.
The support circle can also include people who sit outside of your organisation, thus connecting all the people who are involved in supporting the individual to keep up to date with their goals and progress.
provides live and continuous positive encouragement to the individual.
connects other support teams and organisations along with friends and family.
aids collaboration for people working across multiple locations or remotely. In particular this supports joined-up working between different agencies and services.
is cost effective as you only pay for the individual's licence and not for the supporters.
helps to establish a continuous improvement ethos as achievement, recognition and dialogue happen continually.
supports people to development in an effective and efficient way.
enables the organisation to include people from outside the organisation to help coach an individual - e.g. tutor / key network influencer / or support to the individual if they are from a minority background.
All About Me
The ForMi App
One of the most unique aspects of ForMi is the linked Smartphone App. This can be used by individuals to make posts (written comments or pictures) on a timeline, similar to many social media apps. These posts record achievement against their goals and provide a rich story of progression. The App can also be used as an information and communication tool between the individual and their Mentor and Circle of Support.
If professionals are involved in supporting the individual, the App enables a more joined-up approach. Each person can see how the Individual is progressing and provide encouragement and additional evidence of achievement.
If the Individual cannot use a phone, or does not wish to, the Circle of Support can provide all the evidence of achievement and progress, involving the individual as much as possible. They can also share actions they have taken to support the goals. All this keeps them focused on what is most important to and for the individual on an ongoing basis. Critically, the whole process is safe because only the organisation, the individual and their Circle of Support can see the information that is posted in their story
