Feedback in Pairs
Before the exercise, briefly introduce the notion of feedback, its rules and purpose.
This is an opportunity to give each other feedback and to receive it. We approach a person we want to give feedback to or receive feedback from. The person does not have to listen to our feedback or give feedback to us. When we are done, we go to the next person we want to give feedback to or receive feedback from. The exercise can be conducted in the working room or somewhere outside, but participants should be instructed to stay within each other’s field of vision to facilitate finding the person you need.
This exercise should be done at the half-way point of a ten-day training or near the end. In situations when there are conflicts within the group, this exercise can help encourage their transformation. Near the end of the training (but not at the very end, because it may call for additional discussions that time should be set aside for) feedback can be used to support next steps. The training team should also participate in these feedback rounds.
