98/365 – ” Do you do regular retrospectives? ”
For the last couple of months, my co-founder and I have been doing weekly retrospectives with our team.
We give ourselves ten minutes to write down the answers to four questions before taking turns answering them.
The questions are: What are the elephants in the room? What were some wins? What challenges you’re facing? And last but not least, what specific kudos would you like to offer to other team members?
Regardless of what people share, both the good and bad help everyone get out of their heads and build a shared narrative of the week.
Success is not agreement, just an increased understanding.
