How we do it

Principles to find out what is really going on in the business:

1) We create a respectful and open ‘space’ to collect feedback

2) We share the results with management anonymously and without repercussions to the employees

3) We dedicate at least two hours of focused meeting time to allow employees to stimulate their memory, listen to their coworkers, and contribute when they are ready to do so.

4) We bring an unbiased focus to the meetings. We don’t work at your business, so we don’t have a history of expected behaviors. We are not involved in the personal feelings, emotions, and dynamics that exist between any of the employees who have spent any length of time together.

5) We get the owner’s commitment up front to act on the feedback and suggestions we collect.
