Voice of the Agile Team: A Retrospective for Teams in Conflict

Gus and Sebastian developed a retrospective to help build empathy and a shared understanding for a team operating as a group of individuals – The Voice of the Agile Team Retrospective. The retrospective builds on coaching concepts from Organisational Relationship and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC) to get participants to put themselves in the shoes of their colleagues.
