The Feedback GameMariya Breyter

Feedback is vital to our personal and professional growth. It helps create self awareness, identify areas of strength, and areas of opportunities. However, in our everyday life we do not find enough time to provide or ask for feedback. We frequently do not know how to respond to feedback and start explaining our motives or take it personally, while the only correct answer to feedback is "thank you". This game provides an opportunity to give and receive feedback in a positive and non-confrontational way. It can be used for alignment and team building, or as a format for retrospectives. This is my original game that I practices with multiple teams in several organizations, and everywhere we found a lot of value (and fun) in it.
We will be playing two games during the session: a collaboration game (which is a learning experience by itself), and then will use my original feedback game to give each other feedback as a retrospective. What is most fascinating, both are silent games. The power of silent communication is yet to be understood and quantified, and these two games will show how powerful silent communication may be and how it can create thoughtful and respectful atmosphere on the team.
