WLP145 - Asking for Feedback and Learning through Conversations

There are many ways of learning from others in our remote team: through asking for feedback and running activities where we can learn from each other. 


A few updates:

Lisette is looking for beta readers and there will be a range of ways in which to give her feedback on her book. To do so, sign up to her newsletter: https://www.collaborationsuperpowers.com/

Why are companies still asking people to work from home without providing them with the support they need?

Are there two “camps” of organisations working with remote teams: those that have been doing it for decades (and will not change their ways) and those making the transition who can see the potential of integrating a wide range of tech into their communications.

The main conversation:

Asking for feedback. Lisette shares how she’s gathering feedback on her TedX Talk.

The kind of questions / directions we can use when asking for feedback.

Using Google Docs to gather feedback and turn it into a conversation.

Latte and Learn sessions.

Learning from each other asynchronously.
Happy Melly’s weekly challenge.

Using online apps/tools to capture thoughts as they come – and then sharing them so that others can build on them.

We are really talking here about building a learning culture, so that people get used to trying things out, sharing their experiences and focusing on improvement.

Nurturing curiosity – it’s something that can be developed given the time, space and structure. And encouragement, of course…
