Today’s show includes virtual coffee with the lovely Lisette Sutherland and during our chat we talk about feedback, about giving and receiving feedback and more importantly, about ensuring that feedback is a conversation that all team members have, not just a top down stream of information.

01:09 Pilar introduces the podcast and the feedback loop.
03:40 How technology is helping us to give feedback and what it's addressing.
11:05 A story from Paul Matthew's Capability at Work illustrating the need for feedback across the organisation.

28.25 Team retrospectives.
31.30 360 degree team feedback.
