Reflecting on the feedback

Why? Participants initially deal with the results individually, then as a team. They share what the results trigger for them and which topics they see in the results.

  • How do we feel about the feedback?
  • What do we want to better understand?

Defining and understanding topics

Why? Thanks to the knowledge gained, you define topics that you'd like to explore further.

  • Which topics do we want to address?
  • What have 
we observed? How does it manifest itself? Why does it happen?

Defining actions

Why? Concrete, action-oriented measures are derived for the identified topics.

  • Why should it change? What should it look like?
  • Which activities should we keep, change, stop and start doing?
  • Who could support us with this? E.g., your manager, HR, people working on the topic in question


Why? Reflect on the workshop: identify possible improvements in the workshop process and collaboration.

  • How did it go?
  • What could we improve next time?
