I’ve riffed on retrospective exercise developed by Ellen Gottesdiener and Mary Gorman. That exercise uses 4 L’s in a quadrant format. The quadrants are labeled Liked, Lacked, Longed For, and Learned.
I use 3 columns, Liked, Lacked and Learned. Then after the team has filled in those columns generally as a shout out exercise, I draw a line under them and ask, “So what are we going to Leverage from today? What commitment can we make to take what we discovered today in order to make tomorrow better?”
It’s working well for me!
