Description:

Think about your latest retrospective.

Were people interested and engaged, or did they complain and accuse? Did you leave the retrospective feeling like you learned something valuable, or were you simply there to check the retrospective off your list? Did anyone at the retrospective say, “nothing changes anyway, so what’s the point of this?”

You’re not alone. The fact of the matter is that retrospectives are hard work! Yet effective retrospectives are possible, and they can have a transformative effect on your team’s performance and ultimately your organization’s ability to achieve its goals.

How can you break the negative mindset around retrospectives? What practical steps can you take to give your team a voice that can be heard by your manager, your stakeholders, and your company’s executives?

You'll learn all that (and more!) in just 7 minutes :)
