Presented by Martin van Gogh and Colinda de Beer

Abstract:

You will be part of an experiment! How often do you give and receive feedback? We all know the basics of feedback and still most of us just ‘forget’ to use it. In our agile working environment feedback is one of the most valuable tools in communicating. Learning, adjusting, changing, hard to succeed without feedback!

Ask yourself: If I give feedback, is it positive feedback or do I only tell others what went ‘wrong’? An exercise based on the Solution Focused approach will be used to experience the difference between problem talk and solution talk.

In this session you learn how ‘simple’ agile feedback really is. Once you have (re-)learned the basics there is nothing stopping you from improving your communication and relations, both at work and at home!

Format and length:

90 min presentation and interactive exercises

Intended audience and prerequisites:

The session is targeted at anybody open to learning with and from each other.

As we read in the agile manifesto:
"We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it."
"At regular intervals, the team reflects on how to become more effective, then tunes and adjusts its behavior accordingly."

How better to help each other, reflect and adjust than using the power of feedback?

Objectives of the session:

The main idea to get across is:

  • Giving en receiving feedback is a very powerful tool in continuously adjusting and improving ourselves.
