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.


How you can do it

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

1) Create a respectful “space”

2) Make your employees feel comfortable by eliminating the “blame game”

3) Carve out time for the important conversations

4) Set aside the personal feelings and focus on business.

5) Send the message with actions instead of talk.
