Improve the team’s feedback skills with this characteristic game!

I made this video because I believe this game is helpful when a team wants to improve their feedback skills. In this exercise, the team members hand out cards to each other with positive and negative characteristics. When they hand out a card they will also tell why the other receives the card. This game makes it much easier for the group to give and to receive feedback.

Make sure the exercise is practiced playfully and everyone feels safe. You can do this by sometimes making a joke during the exercise. When the team feels comfortable and safe, they are more likely to see it as a game rather than something very serious. A lighthearted atmosphere will encourage more honesty from the people who give the feedback and more openness from the people receiving the feedback.

Try it out!
