Extended abstract:

One way to to improve team performance is to arrange personal feedback sessions on a regular basis. However, giving each other personal feedback is not always easy. You need to be constructive without bringing up too much emotions.
In this session we will explore a number of ways to facilitate constructive personal feedback sessions with your team. We will a card game that is based on the 'Core Quadrant' model by Daniel Ofman (or the Werte- und Entwicklungsquadrat by Helwig and Schulz von Thun):

Participants will be sharing their personal core qualities, pitfalls, challenges & allergies in a card game. We will discover how our pitfalls and allergies are related to our core qualities and this affects the behavior and effectiveness of a team.
Besides giving other team members feedback you will also learn how to introspect yourself. You will learn how a team can use this to grow and become more effective in their day to day work.
Since the theory behind the game is very easy to explain we have lots of time to actually play discuss and discover team dynamics. We can even analyze some conflict situations that participants bring to the stage and we will explain how we used the game in our own environment.
