This workshop is part of our Fix Your Meetings program. It can also be taken stand-alone.

If your team could only have one meeting, it would have to be a retrospective; driving continuous improvement through frequent, deliberate reflection.

The team gathers on a regular cadence and unpacks what happened, what worked, what didn't work, the successes and the failures. Through this exercise, opportunities for improvement emerge and team culture is positively reinforced.

However, great retrospectives can often be challenging because we want them to be constructive and blame-free. Involving a skilled facilitator is often a good choice for ensuring retrospectives are positive in these ways.

Whether you've never had a retro or you hold them regularly, we're confident there is plenty you can learn.

In this workshop, you will...

  • Learn how to hold effective team retrospectives.
  • Learn multiple models and structures for retros.
  • Learn essential facilitation skills for retros.
  • Learn how to engage the team in retros.
  • Explore what a culture of learning looks and feels like.
  • Build your confidence in hosting retrospectives.
  • Learn common pitfalls of retros.

You really kept us on track, and made sure all decisions and parking lot items were recorded. As a result, there was never a sense that something was "decided" but then lost, never to return to it again, and there was no derailing due to off topics, but rather an efficient use of the parking lot.

PeopleStorming are excellent facilitators. They are incredible at gathering information, prepping with purpose, and creating an environment around the toughest issues that is healthy and constructive.

They use organizational improv in an innovative way to solve complex cultural problems. I have seen them push the envelope in terms of traditional facilitation and helping teams think about their retrospectives in new and interesting ways.
