HOW TO CREATE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT IN THE AGILE RETRO

HOW TO CREATE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT IN THE AGILE RETRO

Hi guys, this week I want to help you with a topic that pops up quite often, I want to explain how you can create a safe environment in the agile retro. A lot of people come to me and ask me how can we help team members to say whatever they feel? Sometimes people do not feel comfortable to share everything.

One possibility to improve the situation can be by using a tool I learned about some time ago in the ORSC (Organisational Relationship System Coaching) training: Designing the Partnership Alliance (DTA).

The ORSC explains that the designed alliance requires different complexity. They recommend we should coach other people to design alliance between each other. The first thing what is recommended is to get clear agreements and expectations between team members.

Team members are encouraged to openly discuss their desires and wants and what do they seek to achieve. It´s important they state and express the values. They should also pay attention to not express how they want OTHER to be, but how THEY can commit to be in that particular work relationship.
