These Grounding Assumptions activities help state agencies explore how beliefs can advance or constrain deeper stakeholder engagement.  State agencies can use these resources to identify and examine beliefs in the culture of the agency that underlie leadership behaviors. 

The Grounding Assumptions packet of resources includes the following:
•    Overview/Infographic 
•    User Guide 
•    Facilitator’s PowerPoint with Presentation Notes
•    Activity and Response Sheet
•    Suggested Follow-through
•    A Customizable Activity for Any Content

These Grounding Assumptions were developed by the participants in the Thought Leader Forum on the Touchpoints between Leading by Convening (LbC) and Implementation Science (IS), hosted by the NCSI in collaboration with the State Implementation and Scale-up of Evidence-based Practices (SISEP center).
