1. Explain to your team the rules for a safe space

  • Every opinion is valid
  • It’s not personal. Focus on facts, not blaming someone.
  • Open-minded listening to detect opportunities

2. Choose the questions template for a better perspective

  • Quick retrospectives define the team’s key focuses of attention
  • Mad, Sad, Glad format to understand your team’s emotional health and consider changes
  • Start, Stop, Continue template to focus the team on new habits by defining what to do or don’t
  • Sailboat framework helps to define the vision for the team and anticipate problems ahead
  • The 4 L’s look at the current situation from a factual perspective

3. Schedule action items with owners and follow-up dates

They will help as calendar remainders and keep track on people and tasks progress.
