  • You can use many different metaphors with this question - type of animal, hardware, flavor. Be careful not to use a metaphor that will seem frivolous or silly to your team.I pass answer is okGather answers – words and make them visible (happy, angry, sad,….)
  • Group of 4 ppl Leader describes productive and non-productive communication patterns Then all discuss what they mean for the retrospectiveDraw attention to the Focus On/Focus Off posterBriefly read through it.Form small groups, with no more than four people per group. Ask each group to take one pair of words to define and describe. If there are more than four pairs/groups, it’s OK if more than one group has the same pair of words.Ask each group to discuss what their two words mean and what behaviors they represent. Have them describe the impact each would have on the team and the retrospective.Each group reports on their discussion to the whole team.Ask people whether they are willing to stay in the left column (Focus On descriptions).Many teams carry forward the Focus On behaviors as working agreements to improve dayto-day communication.

You may want turn on a dime and make that the major topic of discussion for the retrospective!If you do have Prisoners in the room, suggest that they can choose how they will spend their time... they can engage or not. Prisoners can stay, but leave on a break if they wish
