Facilitating goal-driven retros to build a growth mindset

#Retrospectives are the time within a sprint that a team has the opportunity to reflect on their way of working. They try to understand how they can become better at what they do and how they do it. When facilitated and managed well, retrospectives can propel a team towards success by building a growth mindset, which simply holds that people can learn and grow.

Retrospectives, and the growth mindset, build confidence and collaboration among team members, particularly during times of enhanced stress and pressure, as many of us currently find ourselves in. Retros aren’t always easy to run, though. When managed poorly, a retrospective can easily veer into a blame game and can give the most vocal of opinions the platform without arriving at a path forward. Teammates will often start to opt out of these sessions and you may find they are the first meetings to be removed from the calendar when time is tight.

During this session, attendees will learn how to build trust and stronger relationships within their team by focusing on opportunities for growth and continuous learning. Attendees will leave with an understanding of how to:
+ Facilitate a goal-oriented retrospective
+ Build confidence and collaboration among team members
+ Help teammates feel happier and more fulfilled
